Notes

Mixing & matching my handspun, undyed, natural yarns for a round shawl.

3/3/2013 I’m using the circular recipe, but so far it’s looking semi-circular. I’ve re-read the instructions and re-counted my increase markers a bujillion times, but still can’t figure out why I’m missing half my circle, lol. Maybe my weird go-with-the-mood choices of stitches are pulling it in? I dunno.
added note: after a quick look at others’ projects from this recipe sheet, I see that the increases should be every other row, not every 4th row as written! It’s been mentioned on the pattern’s comments as well.

5/18/2015 I just watched the Craftsy.com class by Stephen West, in which he called a really large, blanket-like shawl a “shlanket,” lol. Yup, that’s what this beast is.
I’ve added an applied I-cord to the inner edge, with the camel yarn. This ended up being a collection of sheep breeds, with a few camelids tossed in, lol.

Added a pic of the notes for which breed appears when. They’re listed in order of the shawl’s stripes, starting from the top/neck and progressing towards the outer edge.
