Frogged the thong

I had to for the thong. The problem was the gauge. I cheked it half way through. I fit like I was King Kong. I wish I was that big. LOL. But I am not. I am starting over I will also try it on every so often to check the fit. Anway it will get done and fit.

Two Easy lace shawls

I call this my "Un-Vention" shawl - the lace pattern is adapted from a filler stitch on a traditional lace stitch that goes by multiple names. It makes a lace that is virtually "little leaf lace" - but GROWS at a constant rate.

I tend to think of this a a single pattern with two ways of constructing it - but various friends insist that it is really two patterns. so here they are:

Un-Vention Shawl - tip up

Cast on 1.
1) K,yO,K into single stitch
2 and all even rows -purl
3) K, [k,yO,K into single stitch], k
5) k2, [k,yo,k into single stitch], k2
7) k3, yo, k1, yo, k3
9) k3, yo, k until 3 stitches remain, yo, k3
