Little Arrowhead Shawl (pdf) for my mom, and I got through one repeat and a couple of rows before my cables started being too short. Last night I pinned it out to take a long look at it.
It still kind of looks barfy. Now I know I haven't wet it and truly blocked it, but I just don't see a definitive pattern here. And it just looks like Granny Square (i.e., not Chanel) to me. I think it's headed for the frog pond.
A closer look:
What do you think? Maybe this yarn is just doomed. My next try might be some scribble lace, and after that maybe just a mitered square pillow (thanks for the idea, Kathryn)? Or a felted purse? After all, my mom loved the colors of this yarn, but she didn't mention anything about the texture. What do you all think?
