Why I need a Mannequin
I meant to photograph this shawl yesterday when my daughter was home. She is a much better model than I am. I do not know how people get such good pics of themselves in the mirror.
This was the Hanne Falkenberg Pirouette cape which came as a kit. Lots and lots of garter stitch. I am still not sure if I will keep this or gift it. It was good to get another languishing UFO done, and to clear out more of my yarn stash. I am creating a whole new issue with self-spun yarn, but that is so much fun.
