The Prairie Shawl in Premier Rodeo uses short rows to create a lovely lace border along the shawl edge. On every odd numbered row you will incorporate the last stitch of the shawl edging with one stitch from the shawl body. After doing so, you will turn your work and continue to work just on the shawl edge stitches. Eventually, all of the shawl’s body stitches will be worked. At that point, the shawl edge stitches will be bound off and you're are finished!
I decided to dress up as Totoro for our employee Halloween party this year, of course, I needed to add in a little handmade touch to my costume.Our Faux Fur Pom Poms were the perfect answer to add in a whimsical extra touch from the film. A few minutes of crafting let me create a handful of Soot Sprites, a must have for any Totoro costume.
