Debbie and the MOKS tour will be at Stix-N-Stitches (Exit 148) this Thursday! To honor her Gallery of Notorious Knits, I'm taking this
Alas, there's no documentation. I had completely forgotten about this shawl. I remember loving the yarn, a hazy mohair and bouclé laceweight, but can't remember its name or anything about the pattern. (I do remember modifying the pattern to make the shawl smaller.) Its construction makes its tails longer than the tails of a Shetland half-square shawl would be, which helps it sit securely. For reasons unknown, the crochet is worked Bosnian-style. If anyone knows more, do tell.
I'm looking forward to a fun time at Rhinebeck. But I was disturbed to read about SistahCraft's negative experience at the Brooks Farms booth at MDS&W. That's simply not acceptable. Personally, I think anti-racist shoppers should descend on them at Rhinebeck and, if anything is amiss, register their complaints with Festival Manager Bob Davis (telephone 845-756-2323).
Edited to add: Blogspot was behaving badly when I initially tried to post this post. The delay afforded the opportunity to tack on a "proof of life" photo demanded by group mom Sharon for the ISE3 Exchange. Well, friends, not to worry, My So-Called Scarf is still alive, although it's curled into a fetal ball, perhaps to emulate the roving that's been getting so much attention lately. Ah, sibling rivalry. Uncurled, she's more than three feet (1 m) long.
Maybe the scarf would enjoy an outing to Rhinebeck too. Roundabout Exit 151, it's usually the socks that have adventures (they have the advantage of portability), but Rhinebeck is a place where shawls (and therefore scarves, stoles, lappets, and even clapotis) rule. [g]
