Help!?

I saw a shawl that I'm trying to copy - it was a simple trianglular shawl knit in stockinette (with a knit on border - which I figured out) but every eighth row was a drop stitch except the drops ran

Another Aspen Leaf Shawl

My wife wore a shawl I made for her on a recent trip to her mother's. Her mother said she'd really like to have something like that to wear, so here it is.

Quick!

No make that EXTREMELY QUICK - this blanket took all of about 5 hours to make! It's perfect for when that baby suddenly appears from nowhere!

Aspen Leaf Wrap

I made this shawl/wrap for a friend recently diagnosed with an agressive breast cancer. She will be undergoing a double mastectomy in about a week.

Quick Shawl - sending to Saudi Arabia

I have a "son" from Saudi Arabia who is in college in the states. He's traveling back to visit his "real" family so I quickly knit this shawl for his mom.

Maikell Shawl (sorta')

This was made with revisions from the Estonia Lace book (don't remember the exact name I borrowed it from the library). I made it with Zephyr 50/50 wool/silk on a US size 4 needle.

Fir Cone Rectangular Baby Blanket

I just completed this baby blanket. It was a fun knit - but I forgot that the pattern would need to be blocked to lay flat.
