I have made it to the last section of the shawl, and run out of red yarn. I had planned on using some black that I had in my stash for the border but it was a lighter weight and I didn't like the way it looked. So now I am going to wait until after Eid, and go to the market to pick up some thing a bit heavier.
I am still planning on black though, because this red is very bright and I think black will look best. I will be using the sideways knitted on garter stitch border that EZ suggests in the Almanac. So this WIP is going into a temporary hibernation.
