I think I did more decrease rows that increase rows so the top bit is kinda wonky. I love how it came out.

TARDIS!

I went down a bunch of needle sizes because the shawl calls for fingering weight and I used lace weight. The resulting shawl is still really airy and light. It’s a bit more like a scarf than a shawl, but I can still sling it around my shoulders when the AC is up too high.

Since finishing the TARDIS shawl, I’ve started sweater number six for the year, a tank top I’m designing for the Designer’s Challenge group on Ravelry. Still working on the vanilla socks (for which I’m going to do a crystal heel from the latest Knitty) and I’m almost done with the leg of the first one. The next socks in the queue are some TARDIS socks because I’m a huge nerd. I’m planning to make some fingerless mitts with the lace I used for Bigger on the Inside held doubled. I can be completely nerdy and matchy at the same time. Y’know, in six months when the weather is no longer a billion degrees.
