My current work in progress:

Here is the shawlette, unpinned and being modeled by Gwendolyn:

I wanted a good bird’s eye view, so I perched precariously on a chair for that shot. Here’s a close-up of the bottom point:

Thanks for all your great comments on this. It is a little larger than a shawlette. This was knit from a skein of Dream in Color Baby, which is laceweight and comes in skeins of approximately 700 yards and 113 grams. I had 37 grams left over. I used approximately two-thirds of the skein. If my math is correct, that’s about 229 yards leftover, so I made the shawl in 471 yards. You could make it from one skein of Wollmeise. Hmmmmmm . . .

In other news, I cleaned out my kitchen cupboards and gave all the food away to a food drive:

All except one lonely box of whole-wheat pasta and some cooking bags. What’s up with me? Changes!

Meanwhile, Lucy consented to lie on the new shawltette so you can get an idea of the size:
