Shawl and a Class promo

I did not manage to get much work done on the Roman Wedding Shawl while I was on call:


Cat shown for scale. And because he is so cute.

However, since finishing ICU call last Sunday morning, I have made much progress.

I really should link directly to the Morning Surf Scarf pattern I guess. Although you can't go wrong checking out Random Cyn's blog.

As written, the "seafoam" sections are separated by stockinette - I eliminated a single row so that it alternates between stockinette and reverse stockinette. I have realized that the pattern is a) very forgiving and b) a bit of a pain to frog, so I am not worried about the errors - some less obvious than others. This "no-Frog" plan has accelerated the rate at which this is shawl is growing. It actually turns out that just one skein won't be enough - so this week I picked up a second skein. I imagine that I will have enough left over to do a proper fringe on it (once I get home that is - I still am holding out hope that I can get it done in time for the wedding)

Gratuitous cute cat shot.

And for the class promo:

The lovely ladies at Passionknit are holding an inaugural Beginner Crochet Class on the last Monday in September. The class project is a Noro Granny Square in your choice of yarn. Above is a Kureyon Sock Square. Below is a Kureyon Classic Square.

The class will be held in the afternoon, and one or two spots remain. Contact Passionknit if you are interested.

That's a great idea to do a granny square out of Noro...no need to change colors!

I made a morning surf scarf and I remember how hard it was to frog. Yours is lovely and if you have the time and yarn to add fringe, it will really add to the beauty.

Wow, a grannie scarf as a beginner project? That's so awesome! And... I never thought I even liked grannie squares, until this Noro one. It's beautiful.

The shawl looks great too. Must have been an uneventful night at the ER.
