Flower Basket, Continued
I got quite a bit of work done on the Flower Basket Shawl (IK Fall 2004) this weekend. I now have a yellow stripe, another pink stripe, and we're getting back into purple again now. At this point, I've knit more repeats of the center design than the pattern actually calls for, but I'm hoping to pretty much use up my ball of yarn on this shawl. The trick will be estimating how much yarn I'll need to work the 10 rows of edging without having too much left over, but with enough to bind off at the end. This should be pretty fun for you guys to watch, as I see all sorts of problems if I guess wrong. Since I get 4 new stitches every right side row, it will make guessing fun. At this point though, I've got plenty of yarn left for a couple more repeats of the center "basket" section. If anyone wants to distract the Knitting Goddess over the next week or so and say, knit something without doing a gauge swatch, try to redo a pattern for a completely different gauge its written for- as you knit it, or otherwise keep her busy, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
