A crochet shawl
I squeaked in another finish before we leave this morning! This is a wheelchair shawl for donation. It started as the Carrie Penny shawl But I'm slowly making some modifications to give ti a more defined neckline and a modified front edge. Once I get it the way I like it I'll write out some instructions as best I can. It's not quite right yet but it's really close and this one is perfect for using.
The yarn is Mandala Tweed Stripes and I think I used about a skein and a half. I like this yarn a lot, which is a good thing, because I bought a bunch of it on sale.
This very simple edging on the front is one of the modifications that I made and I really like the effect.
The things I posted this week might be my only finishes for August! This is my last post for a while. I usually try to leave some scheduled posts but I spent too much time this week hanging out with friends and I didn't have time to schedule out 2 weeks of posts. The first place we stay doesn't have internet but I'll get to the library a couple of times and make a few posts but there won't be daily posts at all this month. I know that you don't care! Probably when I post you will know that we had a rain day so let's hope for very sporadic posting.

Have a wonderful time! Never apologize for spending time with friends (not that you did). Kick back and enjoy.

Love the shawl. I was telling an artist (Sarah T.), a knitter, about it today in Clark Park and came back to your blog to get the image and URL. - jim
