and it just seemed to me that the Feather and Fan Shawl (pp. 56-58) (which is not the same as the Feather and Fan Shawl shown on the knitpicks site) was perfect for the yarn and would work with the beads . . . and the next thing I knew, I was casting on.
In the meantime, I am NOT done with the body of the Orenburg shawl. I slipped into some kind of weird space/time continuum issue and even though I'm still decreasing one stitch every other row and I can see the rows disappearing on the chart as I cross out each completed one . . . I seem to stay about 7" away from done.
This is probably just as well since I still have no idea how to finish the shawl given that my shawl is bigger than the shawl as originally written and I can't seem to get hold of the designer to tell me what to do about the teeth.
But I really wanted to finish it by the end of April . . . and I'm running out of April.
