Spin, Spin, Sugar by Sneaker Pimps
There could not be a more appropriate project name for this shawl, started back in 2014, as a test of the pattern for a friend.
I must’ve started this shawl a total of ten times or more; in the beginning, not enough skill. Even today, I know there are mistakes and the spine looks so sloppy. Even as torturous as this shawl was, I am kind of feeling like making another with better results, maybe with a stretchy yarn. The pattern called for beads, which I did not possess.
Believe it or not, I could not keep my stitch count’s even on either side, and this was during the first stockinette field. The mystery lace section went smoothly enough. I did not realize there was a difference between a Star stitch and a star increase stitch, so I lost many stitches there. The ending stars don’t line up because of this.

I got this cone, either from Newton’s Yarn Country or the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers knitting guild raffle. I barely made a dent. I think I will take back to the guild for someone else to use.
