Sample Shawl

This is the lovely draft that I originally planned to use tomorrow in our Sheep to Shawl. I had never woven it before, so I measured out some scraps of sock yarn I had on hand.

I really enjoyed weaving it, but after much review we decide that this draft doesn't show itself very well for judging. It is really hard to eyeball the fact that it is evenly beat (and I do beat it evenly and carefully and keep a 45-degree angle on hand to make sure I don't get off and measure every inch or so).

We'll be doing something different tomorrow, and I can't wait to post pictures when it's done.
