honky tonk badonkadonk

ok, so the post title has nothing to do with anything. i just did not know before this morning that such a song existed. who knew that country boys were ass men?

anyway. i did set aside all the other things that i was working on in disgust. and cast on for an emergency belated birthday shawl for my mom. yes, i am a terrible person who forgot her mother's birthday. the plus side to all of this is that i probably was going to wait to give her a gift until she comes to visit me next month anyway. or at least that is what i will tell myself. if all goes well i will finally use the schaefer laurel that has been taken out of the stash only to be frogged and put back in the stash 100 badonkazillion times. honestly, i think the laurel might be beating out rowan wool cotton as the most stubborn yarn in my stash.

Swallowtail Shawl in progress

progress is very good so far. i'm a teensy bit worried about running out of yarn and am planning to start the edging soon. i'll let you guess what it is. btw, it's going to be more scarf-like due to yarn limitations, so does anybody know where i can find a nice shawl pin?

badonkadonk. tee hee.


  1. I didn't realize I was giving you such stubborn yarn, sorry bout that! It should have a nice drape for a shawl, tho. As for shawl pins, there was something I saw online... Designs by Romi? Try that for a search. My LYS sells them so I've never needed to order one.

  2. It's going to be a very pretty shawl/scarf!

  3. I have no clue what the lace pattern is but the colors sure are purty! As for the shawl pin, I've seen some at my LYS but you could also look for a pretty hair accessory that can be used as a shawl pin.
