So now that I’m back from my summer travels (is it even summer yet? How can I possibly have post-summer hangover in May?) I am putting aside the socks and picking up Frost Flowers & Leaves again. Glamorous seems to be excited about my progress so far, but she did express a worry . . . based on some of the finished shawls I’ve seen, she’s concerned that it’s going to be too big, too blanket-like. She’s thinking more fancy-pashmina, less mumu.
As I’ve mentioned, I’m working the shawl with Zephyr laceweight on size 4 needles, and I’m wondering if anyone has any thoughts about omitting a repeat (or several) of chart two, and what that might do to the size of the finished piece. I’ve put this question to the wonderful Frost Flowers & Leaves Yahoo! Group, but if anyone else out in the ether has any ideas or insight in this area, they’d be much appreciated.
