not enough knitting is going on around here
And not a measly 3 day vacation- the kind normal people get for Labor Day (no, I don't have it off- I have school) I want a mega vacation- the week long, sleep in, tv watching, knitting, spinning extravaganza of a vacation. That would be great. Although truthfully, I'd probably end up using my vacation to catch up on work.
grr. I have to get back to work now. Maybe I can teach myself to knit in my sleep, a la the Yarn Harlot. :) that would be great. Actually, I'd even take dreaming about knitting. That would be great

Although, this doesn't prevent me from buying new supplies.... Stitches Midwest is next weekend!
Whoo hoo! that's better than painkillers!

Back to the Beginning...
Basically- I have 2 options; I can make the shawl 20 inches wide (if I follow the pattern) or 16 inches wide (if I drop one repeat)
Guess which way I'm leaning? Heh. Not only will it save some time- which is much needed.... but then the back of the shawl won't hang quite so low on the dress that I've bought, reducing the possibility of snagging.
So the question is.... is 16 inches too short? I don't think so, but then again, I've never made a shawl before.

Drum Roll please...
After much thought, I changed my mind, and decided to go with a stole pattern instead of a shawl.
So I've picked "Moon Dance" by Pink Lemon Twist- picture available at http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/7587/824/1600/moondance.jpg
Isn't it pretty!
Now I just have to convince my mother that it's normal for brides to wear shawls at the reception. She's not convinced. Heh.
