Al's Shawl is going to the Studio

Lynnette at 3 Bags Full, asked Al if she could display her shawl in the Studio for awhile.
There is no hurry to give it to her cousin, so off it goes. I needed a model, so the boy in the park statue had to do.

Al warns the border wasn't terribly fun. She had to pick up 400 stitches (or was it 200?) for the trim on size 2's. It has been fun to watch her knit this cape/poncho and see it come together.

I'm chugging along on the vest fronts. I had to call Joan for some help this morning. "It is a glitch," she told me. The problem...
I'm getting all turned around with directions on the circulars. She had the fix: go to straights. She says it will be crystal clear.

Postcard contest goes until Labor Day remember. Monica asked if you can enter more than one postcard.....
SURE, you can.

Amazingly beautiful shawl and what patience. The weird thing here is that I came across your blog because I was looking for knitting blog contests to talk about on my podcast and out of all the blogs in the knitting blog universe your's came up. What is amazing to me is that 3 bags full is my LYS and I just interviewed Lynette for my podcast. If you are interested in hearing the interview e-mail me and I will send you a link.
I think it is great you took a knitting class, I am not certain who Joan is.....I find it inspirational somehow that you seeked out this kind of help and it sounds like it was such a positive experience.

I do sell some of the patterns, and also sell whole kits with the yarn and the pattern. Lets take this of blog communication and at least go to straight forward e-mail. Mine is
I'd be happy to tell you what I have- you can see some of them on my Etsy site, though I just sold two kits tonight and have to re-list tomorrow. I do have separate patterns as well. Just e-mail me when you get a chance and we will go from there. I have a question, are you Ali's Mom? I have met her (once) at three bags when she was working ther...she was so nice and ris really really beautiful...and talented!!! Can't get much better then that.

Beautiful shawl. I guess Al is proud that her shawl is shown in the LYS.

Cards are on their way to you ;-)
