…I just can’t decide what shape!
Short background: I have a wedding reception to go to next month and I will be wearing a sleeveless sundress. I don’t like my arms, though, so I want to cover them up with something. For the reception I went to last month, I wore a black blazer, but I’d like to wear something lighter for the next one.
I looked around when I bought the dress but I could not find a wrap or cardigan that I wanted to buy.
I want to start a new travel project and I thought a shawl might be just the thing! I only need to decide if I want it to be [B]a circle or a rectangle[/B].
It seems to me a triangle shape might be quicker but also might not cover as much of my arms as I want, especially when I have to secure it so that I can chase after my toddler.
What do you think? I’m leaning toward a rectangle, but the pattern I picked is charted and I’ve never knitted to a chart before. I’m also interested in trying a circular project and EZ says the pi shawl is a perfect for traveling but I am not sure if it will cover as much of me as a rectangle might.
For yarn, I am not sure if I am going to use worsted or sport/DK weight, but it will not be any lighter than that, and I will probably even look at using a wool or superwash wool instead of my usual acrylic. I want to do it in a nice darker shade of red, so it mostly depends on what I can find when I go to the LYS.
