In a surprise move, I decided that my homespun shawl would look best with fringe, after all. Lookie here:
Not only did I finish my shawl, but I have my own spokesmodel to pose with it!
I’m quite please with it. I steamed the living daylights out of it, then attached the fringe. I found it difficult to cut up my handspun into small pieces for fringe. I kept thinking “all that work . . . ”
But I have to admit, the shawl looks good with fringe. So now I’m happy. For now.
And in celebration, I spun up a couple of ounces of 100% silk in a colorway called “Autumn Splendor.” Darned if I can remember where I bought the fiber, though.
Mmmmmmm! Love my Koigu Kersti! Here’s the ribbed pullover in progress. I’ve got a good bit done on the back:

Thanks to Leslie for suggesting I check out the David Gilmour live DVD — I’ve put it on my Amazon wishlist.
Question: I searched the archives but didn’t find any reference to this. If you are putting a zipper in a sweater–do you put it in by hand or machine?
I don’t think I’ve mentioned zippers in knits in my blog — I haven’t made a sweater with a zipper in ages. But if I were to put a zipper in a sweater, I’d sew it by hand.
Kind of a random question, but is there any Spongebob merchandise that you you don’t have?
Well, I don’t have the Spongebob edition of the 2005 Jaguar XK . . .
