Test Shawl ... check
The test shawl is finished. So, I thought I'd take a couple of quick pics of it to show the border since it caused so much frustration!

Here is the tiny little shawl -- it buckles a bit, but I intend to use larger needles with the actual project:



And here's a close-up of the border:



I absolutely hate this yarn. It's cheap acryclic, and it's rough and splitty. Ick. I can't wait to use the good stuff!

And I have fallen in love with applied i-cord. I keep thinking of ways to incorporate it into whatever I happen to be knitting on!! It's cool!

Those teeth on the edge look especially lovely!

I've used applied I-cord on sweater necks, on at the edge, and one underneath it to keep it from curling. One of them ended up with three. It's a nice change from standard crew neck ribbing.

It's amazing how easy it was once I got headed in the right direction. :rollseyes:

I think I could knit them in my sleep now!

By the time you get done with the real thing, you'll forget how to do anything else! How many are there, about 500?

I'm sure ... I've got to take a good hard look @ the shawl, though, before I add these teeth to it. I have a feeling w/ the lighter weight yarn they're going to be too heavy of a border. I may have to go with something different.

Can you believe that?? All this for nothing! Well, not really, I did learn quite bit from the experience.
