If you ever catch yourself wondering if Retrospace will ever run out of ideas for posts, just remember that I'm doing a post on shawls. That's right - shawls - from the Greek word meaning "easier to knit than sweaters".
Yes, shawls had the benefit of being considered both stylish and not too terribly difficult to create. Indeed, a shawl is more-or-less a big scarf, and everybody knows you start with the scarf when you learn to crochet, macrame and knit.
So, enjoy a heaping helping of shawls posted for your viewing pleasure, but, please, if a particular image doesn't quite meet the requirements of a "shawl" and leans more toward "cape", "poncho" or "afghan", refrain from pointing this out. Let's just say these are all shawls or "shawl-like" creations. Now, commence commenting.
