I found this nice shade of lavender in Loops & Threads Woolike in my stash. And I should have enough. This is an acrylic thread that is sooooft. I've doubled it to make scarves and they are almost luxuriously soft.
I really need to enlarge this pattern, but I'm wondering if I should have begun doing so before now. I'm at row 19 now and the pattern makes 50 rows before the lace trim. I'm not opposed to ripping it back, but if I don't need to...well, I'd love that.
Anyone have a thought about when to begin enlarging? Should I have begun it before now? Or ought I be able to begin increasing this shawl gradually at this point? It's also likely that I'll make this longer than 50 rows. I'm thinking I'll possibly do somewhere between 60-70 rows. I've checked some other projects made of this pattern and I think I'll like it better a tad longer than the pattern is likely to make it. Any thoughts about widening and lengthening are welcome since I will be winging this.
I've finished crocheting the Starling Bag. Yippee! And I picked out this fabric for the lining:
My momentum has slowed down for the time being, but I'll be sure to post a picture when I get this bag finished. Posting this pic keeps me accountable in some fashion.
