In a knitting furry, I finished my Traveling Woman shawl before my brother's wedding with the intention of wearing it to the reception. I'm fairly certain that I followed the pattern correctly, but what I ended up with was more of a scarf than a shawl. It doesn't even fall past my shoulders. I'll admit that I'm more than a little disappointed. All of the Ravelry pictures show this falling to mid-back, at least. I'll have to do a little investigating, but I know that I had the correct number of stitches when I started the lace chart and I did remember to do the yarn overs at each edge... I do know that it's unwearable as-is, so there will be some ripping back if not complete frogging. *sigh*
Reading: Still making my way through Becoming Animal. I'm making it a practice to read one short segment each evening, for two reasons. The first is that I've found this is not a book I can easily pick up, put down, and pick up again and still be able to follow the flow of his thoughts. I need to read the chapters in their entirety. The second is that I need to really focus, making this not a read I can consume while watching Silas out the other eye. It's worth it, though.
