My favorite pattern in the book is the Chrysanthemum Tea Shawl. It took a little over a week, though that time could have been halved. I only worked on it in spurts. It was pretty easy, though I think I flubbed up the middle a bit. Who cares...I love it! This bad boy is about 48" across and could have easily been blocked larger.
Its made with Patons Classic Merino wool and K hook. The original pattern calls for sport weight but since I'm chunky I wanted the gauge a bit larger. If I do it again, I'll use a smaller hook to make it sturdier by being less lacy.
(look my hair is growing back already!)
Sorry this pic is crooked. My camera person is about 4 feet tall and has no patience.
Well I know what I look like from the midget's perspective.
There's alot to do at work, so I get to go into work today...Saturday. Joy.
