It Hap-pened


How may titles can you get out of word plays with hap I wonder!

It's finished and I'm itching to start another even though I have lots of other things that I should be working on. It came out to be a perfect size. I will measure and give specs when it is finished blocking.

I decided against an edging but did a picot bind off instead. I think I will do that on my second one too. I have to say laziness aside( laziness is a big factor) I think that I really like the simplicity of the picot as opposed to an edging. The hap is a very uncomplicated pattern iand it lends itself to simple treatment.

This is kind of like pictures without make-up but I couldn't wait to post pics. Here are pics of my unblocked hap. See this tiny bit left. I was not sure we'd make it!!!

Wow! I'm looking forward to seeing her all gussied up and blocked. Did you find this to be a relaxing and easy knit? Or no? How many balls of ksh did it use?

It looks so lovely. I have never seen a Hap knitted up before. The colours are gorgeous..... and you just had enough yarn for it. I bet you were a bit nervous towards the end, thinking would you make it to the end!!

It's perfectly lovely! And I would never have thought to use KSH for this. The colors are inspired. :)

I love this shawl- it reminds me of a more sophisticated version of that baby blanket I am generally always working on. :) (much, much, much more sophisticated!)
