Earlier this summer, I had a little piece of denim left over from another project and decided to make T some shorts out of it. I very cleverly maneuvered the pieces to fit them onto the fabric and use up that itty bitty piece. But . . . I neglected to pay any attention to whether or not the right sides were facing up! LOL!

I let the pieces sit in my sewing basket until a couple nights ago, when I decided to say "heck with it" and sew them up and consider the mismatched pieces a "design element" instead of a flaw.

I *love* them! I wish I had sewn them up right away so T could wear them this summer. At least we usually have plenty of warm days in September.

Hi, Kelly. I am inquiring about your Elvish Leaves Dishcloth pattern. Did you ever figure out if you could use this basic idea to knit a shawl? I knit shawls for charity and thought this might work, but couldn't wrap my brain around how to go about it. What do you think?

I'm sure you could knit it into a shawl, but I'm not sure exactly how it would work up. I've never designed a shawl before. If you're doing a triangle shawl, I guess you would start at the point and add the stitch pattern as you have enough stitches. (Not very specific, I know, but that's about as much as I can tell you. :-)

If you wanted to do a rectangular shawl style shawl, you could just add on the number of repeats to get you the width you want.
