    Hi Emily — Wow, thank you for a very clear description and photos of the garter tab–I didn’t think of it as a rectangle shape running parallel with the long edge of the shawl. Right?

    Thank you for your response – very kind of you.

    Have you ever tried a triangle jacket: one large center back, plus two smaller ones for the sleeves and a rectangle with slanted edges to fill in the gap — add front boarder edge around the back neck and around the sleeves. I might try this concept with a little luck but as a pullover sweater.

    PS: thought you might be from San Francisco / tamp city but i see you are from Canada — great!

    PSPS: nice site — is that you in the pics? Ah youth-charming…oh and the hats look good too.
