Ain’t That A Kick In The Head by Dean Martin
Craving to make a crescent shaped shawl, I found Terribly Simple pattern by Caitlin Ffrench and started May 6, 2017. The pattern is terribly simple and I did get a crescent-shaped shawl, but not exactly a crescent on July 23, 2017.
I used Netwon’s Yarn Country Softball Cotton (Fiber Content: 100% Cotton; Yarn Color: Mikonos; Yarn Weight: 2, Sport). I noticed earlier some puckering of the fabric, thinking it was yarn related as the cotton seems pretty stiff. I think laundering will soften the cotton which came on a cone and probably has some manufacturing chemical on it that removed softness for process and winding. Finally, I hope that laundering might increase the hue of the color, which are too muted for my tastes.
The name of this project is a play on the irony of my unequal desire to make a crescent shawl and the ease of the pattern. However, I have looked at the other shawls made with this pattern and none of them have the hump at the neck. This is the second time I have made a shawl by pattern and ended up with the hump when none of the pattern pictures had one. What the heck?
This shawl is for sale in the amount of USD $75.00, less 25% discount for friends/family.
