Pattern: Free and Easy Pie Wedge Shawl - from the 2005 Knitting Pattern a Day calendar and on the ball band of Helen's Lace yarn.
Yarn: Fleece Artist Baby Curls (discontinued).
Needles: Size 9 US
Impressions: Three weeks of stress free knitting from start to finish. That is until I stretched the too tight cast on edge and heard a pop:
Technical stuff: Thinking I had taken every precaution, casting on loosely over two needles, it was still too tight. I took a deep breath and treated the edge as a provisional cast on using E. Zimmerman's fool proof sewn bind off and voila, a perfect edge, matching the sewn bind off on the other side. It worked out so well that I've used a provisional cast on for the second one.
The rest of the story: This was made in response to a prayer shawl request. It's a perfect pattern, given to me by a mom who had made one for her daughter. The recipient will be a daughter who has lost both her mom and dad, as well as her good friend. It's light as angel wings with the colour of the rainbow.
