I'm abandoning the ugly shawl I started. I worked on it some more last night and the more I worked on it the bigger and uglier it got! I'm trying out another pattern in the same book in hopes I'll have better luck. I'll post a pic of the new shawl tomorrow-once I get a few rows worked.
Question: Did anyone else work Mary's Hug Shawl with better results? If so, I'd love to hear about which yarn you chose for the project and which hook size you used.
