Wow! Three days past the deadline and I'm still working on the Pi Shawl. Some knitters in my Knit along group including our moderator, are still working of theirs so I don't feel so lonely.
Today, I finally finished the body, and I think I'm ready to add a lace border. I've been looking online for a nice pattern and I think I've found one: Berna's Torchon Lace . Now, all I have to do is find out how to attach the border as I go. I know there is a way. Back to search the Internet!
I'm afraid I won't have it for my granddaughter's birthday party tomorrow, but at least I feel I'm on the home stretch in this race to finish. Here's my progress so far....I went with my son to his optometrist appointment today and while I was waiting, I was knitting on the shawl. The receptionist asked me very politely what I was knitting and I told her. She said she thought it was a backpack or bag. She liked the design so much she offered to pay me to make her one. I politely declined. Knitting for pay is so different than knitting for pleasure. I hated to disapoint her but if I start selling my stuff, it won't be fun anymore. It would be WORK! Isn't that why I took up knitting?....to relax from the stress of work?
