It seemed only fair to finish up some UFOs before I started to plan for projects for the new year.
This free shawl pattern Dream Stripes indulges my stripe fixation, though the pattern has a lace border, and I'm not a fan of lace, neither of knitting it nor wearing it.
I found a nice ribbed border in another free pattern Mizzle, which worked like a charm. The yarn is some vintage Lion Brand worsted.
This other shawl, knit in fingering weight yarn that I recycled and koolaid dyed, proves my point about lace knitting.
Weekend Shawl has a substantial lace border made up of two separate patterns. I'd done okay with the first, but the second was kind of a mess.
Done and Done! Now I'm eyeing the unfinished quilt on my design wall.
