Hopping backwards toward the frog pond, casting on and off...
|Quaker Yarn Stretcher Boomerang in Noro Taiyo|
So my headline says casting on, and off and frogging backwards. This short post is the Casting Off. I love this, Quaker Yarn Stretcher Boomerang, a pattern by Susan Ashcroft. I have made it twice in recent months. It is quick and easy and the end result is a sculptural shawl that people want to take right off your shoulders!! The Noro Taiyo and solid contrasting green yarns came from my knitting group friend, Lauren. I am always happy to home destashed yarns! If you'll notice, my shawl has a border in a contrasting color; I picked up stitches to add depth and an accent of color. This is a pay for pattern, but I think you will enjoy knitting it and it makes a great gift. Please peruse Susan Ashcroft/Stitchnerd Design's patterns. She has so many that I want to make!
Pattern: Quaker Yarn Stretcher Boomerang by Susan Ashcroft

Tomorrow, I will continue the headline story and let you see what got frogged back. (It was actually three projects, but in each case, the ripping out only went back a few inches... still a pain but it wasn't a situation of starting back at square one).
