As the irises push pointy green spikes out of the soil, I start dreaming about days of short sleeves and capris. And I'm reminded of uncontrollable office air conditioning. So I'm thinking about a shawl, but it's terribly hard to find a not-girly, not-gramma shawl pattern. Last year, I made the Not-Knit-Round scarf, but I hardly ever wear it. First, it still sheds. Second, I have to pull it over my head and arrange.it.just.so. Third, it's a smidge too trendy, and I'm convinced that I won't notice when it becomes 'so last year.' I want something I can just wrap around me like a big smushy hug.
For the moment, I'm in love with this shawl pattern SANS POINTS. I read the pattern and the points are done last, as an add-on, so it would be easy-peasy to leave them off. Thoughts?
This is motivation to rip the 5 thrift store sweaters I have in my stash, because I'm on a serious yarn diet.
