f.o. : perfect pie shawl


Since my sister, whom is my #1 reader(maybe) is getting bored not having a new post to read, I thought I would post this tonight. I did finish knitting this at the beginning of December, however I don't think that I have looked at it since. My mom had to put on the crochet border because I have no idea how to crochet. I did however wear it today. It was the perfect weather for my perfect pie shawl. It is out of Weekend Knitting.

I can't say that I loved making this. I don't know, I guess I wanted it (and me) to look just like the girl in the picture. Hmmmm. Wrong color, maybe wrong gauge, and wrong girl. I used a yarn from my stash, that I thought had the right gauge, but it seems to look different.

The other thing is that I hate working with mohair. It totally sheds, and I really HATE that! I will definitely only be wearing this with jeans.
Well, my house is still in shambles from the Christmas tornado, and I am off to finish the sleeve on my slouchy cardigan. And that's a whole different story!
