FO: Freestyle Shawl
I am experimenting with freestyle - changing yarns and stitches, adding beads, etc. I still need to loosen up. I'm still too bound by "rules," but I am having fun with it, and I guess that's the point. Here's my first attempt.

Ha! ME TOO! My biochemistry/biology/anatomy/physiology brain is sooooo straight-laced! I have to do something to loosen it up! Don't worry, the geometry will come so naturally to you. You'll intuitively understand how to shape a two-dimentional object to fit a three-dimentional body. Or, a mathematical stitch pattern might really work for you! (Try to design one based on a prime number, or pi, for example.)

Us left brainers will figure out our own way to venture into right-brain territory.

I found haveing a stash pile helps... you just grab the next ball when you run out... makes for interesting blankest and such.

I think you did a wonderful job
