This May I ripped out Birch Leaf Shawl because it has been on the sticks for three years and it wasn't knitting itself. The pattern wasn't difficult, but it was a pattern that required my attention for every knit row. I do most of my knitting watching TV in the evening with my husband and this pattern just required too much attention for me.
I settled on the Holey Square Shawl pattern. It is a super easy pattern. Eleven rows knit/purl, then two rows where you cast off and then bind on stitches to create the holes. I started it on May 31, but realized it was just not going to be wide enough; frogged and CO with needles two sizes larger on September 6.

Not happy with it. To complete the pattern I need to knit 12 more rows and that should make it square, and then do a single crochet around the edge. I am thinking I might single crochet the sides and then do a boarder on the ends to make the shawl square.
Looking for a edging that would look nice, have to find yarn that will look okay. I think white or ivory may not be right. Maybe a dark gray.
Not too happy with as it is.
