The Shawl with No Name

Is named Musings.

It is the November 2011 Mythology Lace Club pattern from Holiday Yarns.

Prototype shawlette knitted in the Aphrodite colorway, which is more green than the finished shawlette suggests.  Actual Muses colorway is blue.  A picture of the full shawl in the Muses colorway can be seen in the KAL thread (ravelry).

This is the 11th shawl I completed this year. 

Mother says I need a manniquin.

Number 10

Number 10 is a test knit of the Faceted Shawl pattern.  I started it right before my birthday and bound off on Christmas day. 

The unblocked shawl is being modeled by little cousin E.  The colors are better in this pic.

The blocked shawl shows off the pattern, but the colors are a little off.

I may be crazy.

Way back in January, I decided that I would do 11 shawls in 2011.  I actually got off to a pretty good start.  I managed to get three done in January, 1 of them a big shawl. 

It's now the last week of the year.  I have only finished 9.  Number 10 needs blocked.  Number 11 -- about 1/3 of the way around the border.  The border.  I am not liking the border. 

Mortal keeps bugging me about the Pole socks.
