A couple of years ago, I made my first shawl (Bigger on the Inside) (pictured at left) because it was Whovian and thus irresistible. But I insisted that I was not a shawl person. I didn’t wear shawls, except on the rare occasions spouse and I attended an event that involved wearing a Little Black Dress (or a red one, in my case). And then I discovered I quite liked those little lace crescent-shaped scarf-like shawls and the small triangular shawlettes: they were perfect for covering my head and warming my neck in winter while waiting for the MARTA train.
So it’s fitting that today’s WIP is another shawl. I’ve been trying to find the right pattern for this purple variegated yarn for quite some time. Le Weekend (a free Ravelry pattern) must be the third or fourth pattern I’ve tried, and so far I’m very pleased with how it looks.
I’m still seaming the Tunisian Terror. You won’t see any more pics of that beast until it’s finished. I also started and finished another scarf over the long weekend, and that will be the subject of a Freshly Finished Friday post later this week.
