I posted this photo collage on Flickr the other day with a question: Worn this way, does the shawl look crooked in a way that makes you want to reach out and straighten it -- or want to tell me to straighten it?
I have always worn this shawl "traditionally," with the point of the triangle pointing right to my butt. (My butt isn't in any of those photographs, so I don't even have to ask THAT question!) The other day, as I threaded the tails through an old Bakelite belt buckle (my favorite way to tame the tails) and adjusted and arranged, I had a thought... and decided to wear it differently -- slightly askew, a bit off center.
What do you think?
Look at this! I finally searched through the archives to find my first Tools of the Trade post on October 26, 2004. (How long ago is that in blog years?) The similarities crack me up, especially that I'm still toting "seldom-used point protectors" and the old stork scissors "that’s purely for decorative purposes, as it doesn’t cut worth a damn"!
So, I cast off a couple of quick-knit projects in the last week or so and I'm not altogether happy with either of them -- in fact, one of them will be frogged forthwith and need not be mentioned ever again. Last night, I cast on another Afghani Cap so I could try the mods I had in mind and, so far, I'm very happy! Yay for happy!
