• Ready for Pi?

    The Pi Shawl is a Finished Object (FO)!!!  I finished the edging on the flight home from Stitches South.

    Waiting to board, in Atlanta.  Finishing the shawl.

    Today I gave the finished shawl a bath, and pinned it out on our bed, the only place large enough to hold the entire shawl.  The cats aren’t happy about being shut out of the bedroom, but they are going to have to wait to cuddle in the shawl until it is dry.

    What I think of as the "cat spit" stage.  I'm done, but unblocked the fabric is lumpy and uninspiring.

    All washed and pinned out, to reveal the pattern's glory.  Blocking lace is right at the top of my favorite pastimes.

    I love it. The border is stunning the way it points. I just got my yarn, while I was at Stitches South. I am going to start mine next week, while I patiently wait for your book to come out in print. 😀 I aspire to those spiral socks – which got me to Stitches South in the first place, thanks to Donna Druchunas.

      The Oaks Park sock is fun to knit, in an entirely different way than this Pi Shawl. I love variety in my projects, and this lace pattern was a nice change from intarsia. But I haven’t knit an Oaks Park in awhile, and I could be persuaded to knit along with you this summer, once the book gets out there! It is actually a pretty quick design to knit, and watching the spirals develop, uninterrupted, is wonderful.
