yesterdeay I was frustrated - couldn't knit - but had designs rumbling around in my head like bumpercars; so now have two new shawl patterns to post.
'Talia' which has already picked up two nicknames - 'Arrows for the Queen' and 'Olga' is circular and inspired by the the book in the Heralds of Valdemar series. More or less pi shawl construction, with a perpendicular knit on edge.
'Hippo Birdies' is a BS Johnson (aka Discworld/Terry Pratchett) inspired circular shawl - with 'Hippo Prints' (a vaguely catspaw pattern) and feather-and-fan in an almost pi shawl construction. It should block out into scallops without adding an edge.
