Soft Core

The Name

Soft Core by Maurice & The Clichés

Wow! I can’t believe the universe is so in touch with my actions and thoughts today. I was posting some pictures of a male of questionable age on my lust blog because he appeared shirtless in a television show. The next thing on my to do list was posting of this finished project. While Soft Core was a random selection from my music library, the universe has decided otherwise by providing this name related to my finished product.

The Shawl

Dimensions: 30.5-inch width x 16-inch depth
Destination: El Segundo Slipt Stitchers charities
Pattern: Love Your Store by Cally Monster

I thought this was a crescent-shaped shawl. I don’t know where I got that idea. The pattern plainly shows a shawl with a point. I was surprised to discover all “holes” in this shawl had been eliminated; interesting, to say the least. The deliberate mesh section – the only “holes” in this shawl, got confusing for me and I either shorted that section or got my stitches off count.

The edge section left me with the dilemma of running out of yarn. To ensure cohesiveness, I shorted the shawl one row with the beginning yarn color because I was not sure I had enough and because I wanted to keep the row pattern in one color versus changing colors on the return pass, if it turned out I had enough. Fortunately, I had some baby yarn in stash which matched the weight of the original yarn close enough for me to add it to this shawl. The color is not exact, but it does provide a nice edge, especially with the slip stitching.
