Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi Are Square Shawl

 I've been wanting to make one of these shawls for years, ever since I saw it in Elizabeth Zimmerman's book, "Knitting Around." It's such an interesting design, with a round back and square front. It took me ages to wrap my head around the construction, but once it clicked, I had a lot of fun making it.

This is the round back.

This is the square front

And this is how it looks wrapped around me.

The yarn is from Swans Island. It's 2 different coordinating colors, one solid and one ombre. I did a crochet edging because I was running out of yarn and couldn't do the deep saw-tooth border I really wanted. Next time I'll know that I need a lot more yarn for that border.

Now I need to finish a Shakerag Top I started last year. I may run out of yarn for that project, too. I seem to be losing at yarn chicken these days.
