illustrations from yesterday's post

fig. 1

fig. 2
(This was taken the first night I worked on it - it shows the base row of triangles plus 2 tiers. Much more is finished now.)

(Also, I made a decent dinner tonight. A successful experiment. More experiments on the same theme to come.)

(Also, I have posted a couple Easter photos on The Mulligan Years (first post in 5 months!) Go experience teh cute.)

(Also, I am distressed by all this 'imbed disabled by request' business which apparently has come into being while I was on blog hiatus. How can I post the ridiculous Killers video of the song that reminds me of the summer before my senior year of high school? Perhaps MTV will help me.)

Ah yes. MTV comes to my rescue once more.

don't watch the video. Just listen to the song and think about sitting in a car in driveway, wearing shorts and no shoes. Your curfew has just passed. The grass is wet.

Beautiful scarves, Bets!

Georgeous work! Wish I had time to knit right now. Seems like a huge luxury when you've been painting your house for months on end. Can't wait to get back to it!

Beautiful shawl. Where did you find the pattern?

I kind of made it up - I based it on the stitch pattern for the Rusty Nail Shawl from Knitty, but instead of simply alternating YO rows and elongated stitch rows, I added some multiple YO panels in the middle and then mirrored the design. I also picked up a border around the un-bordered short sides, since they were looking a little gross from the different yarn weights.

Links to the first pattern and notes on my Ravelry project page.
