Birch is DONE! WOOHOO!!!! My Mom is so in love with this shawl I thought she should model it for you- see what a versatile knit this is!
Yes, my Mom is as big a ham as I am.
This was a great project- I'm contemplating making another. The finished product is HUGE, big enough to wrap around for a really cozy effect.
I made a major mistake over and over again in the first five rows, but fortunately you can't tell at all. I use stitch markers to set off each pattern repeat. The Birch repeat is offset by one stitch every 8 rows. I didn't realize I needed to move my stitch markers over 1 until I got to the fifth pattern repeat, so the whole first five rows are off by one. OH WELL. I was really worried it would be a hideous, glaring error, but it truly is invisible.
I highly, highly recommend this project.
Birch, from Rowan 34
Brittany Birch needles, size 8.
I started this sometime in January? I think? Really ought to keep better track of this stuff!
