Women With Pointy Sticks Meeting
We had a good meeting in Frisco tonight with around ten women with pointy sticks attending and we got to see the finished blanket in person. It is gorgeous! Elizabeth is going to love it and there are so many neat hats for her to wear that I hope we get a photo or two of her with her blanket and maybe wearing a hat.
I got some advice from several of the ladies regarding finishing in the ends of ribbon yarn and eyelash yarn. I have a shawl knitted out of various different novelty yarns and the ends keep creeping our of where I wove them. I think I am going to use some fine sewing thread and a needle and sew some of the ends down so they don't come undone.
My husband dubbed it the Mardi Gras Shawl.
