It would seem that I cannot give up the habit, and these pages will continue to feature pink and purple shawls.

Here’s a little detail of the edging and the start of the short rows:
Here’s Pudding Grass:
I added beads as suggested, but I think they detract from the eyelet design in the stocking stitch section. They look fine in the edging, though:
So the stash was reduced from 14 to 12. Great stuff!

In the burst of startitis I also cast on Tetiana Otruta’s Little Falls using my last Kidsilk Haze.

Yup, I’m right back where I started.
