1 is One
1 is one shawl, ready to be worn.

1 is One, by Tasha Tudor (Aug 28, 1915 – June 18, 2008)
I loved knitting this shawl. The main body is so simple (despite my messing it up) and the edging is just so sweet. I used this cotton yarn because for years I’ve had it in my stash and couldn’t find the right project for it. But the yarn fits the pattern perfectly – it’s farmy and rustic, with twigs and such scattered throughout.
Although I’m a snob and would knit with wool exclusively if I could, I am proud to say that this shawl is perfect for the climate I live in. Wool is not always practicle here, sadly. But this cotton/wool yarn is multi-season, and I’m certain this will be a useful shawl.
Here’s something else I wanted to say, just in case I don’t get back to the blog anytime soon. I was at the yarn store the other day, and would you believe, someone recognized MAGGIE from the blog?!?! It was strange, but not in a creepy way. It’s been a while since there has been a Maggie picture, so I guess I should post one. You know, for her fans.
Jerry and Maggie. They are Clones, from the new animated movie and cartoon show The Clone Wars. I used one of Jerry’s teeny-tiny Lego clones as a guide to draw the face, and the mask is just a paper plate with some elastic at the back. Easiest craft ever. We’ve since made a whole clone army, and Jerry has decided that his Halloween costume will be a Clone, like this. He keeps reminding me that the gun should not be forgotten. This may be the hardest costume yet.
Maggie, my sweet baby, wants to be a werewolf. Sigh.
