Red Shawl Redux
I just can't get that red shawl from my teen years out of my head. Since I have a large amount of red yarn in my stash, I decided to cast on and reproduce the shawl. I'm using Leader acrylic yarn (mill ends) that I bought on sale at Webs; size 11 needles; a twisted drop stitch, just like my original shawl. Instead of using fringe on the ends like I did in the '70's, I'll probably crochet a lacy border around the entire piece when I'm finished. The shawl is knitting up very quickly (large needles, drop stitch), so this is only a minor detour from my regularly programmed projects.
Last night's WeHo SnB was grand. There were at least 20-25 attendees. The cutest girls there were Natalie (with her darling new haircut) and the adorable Miss Vivian...I can't believe she's almost 1!
There's so much to do in L.A. this weekend....it's overwhelming! Over in Highland Park, it's Lummis Day and the First Annual Los Angeles Accordion Festival. Stitches From The Heart is having a Gemini B-Day Party on Sunday at the shop, along with a sale. The Book Expo at the L.A. Convention Center should be fantastic. Our own, Crazy Aunt Purl will be there. It's the Artwalk in downtown Culver City. Besides ALL that, the weather is gorgeous and perfect for exploring our fair City! Have a great weekend!
