It started out as a bottom-up triangle.
However, it became apparent last night when I switched to a longer circular needle that it was morphing...
Why I carried on and knit another one and a half repeats I don't know...
In the cold light of day, having laid it flat and given it it's freedom it is clear that it wants to be a semi-circle...
Unfortunately I had started out with a sharp point for my 'triangle' but then changed my increases to try to achieve a flatter triangle for a wider shallower shawl.
Tonight, Matthew, I want to be a stealth fighter plane...
However, not a total waste of time. I like the way the cables and lace interact and I have charted it. Just need to get rid of the pointy tail... Also gets over the problem of deciding what to do at the top of the triangle to get a nice, clean straight edge that fitted in with the stitch pattern. Many more options to finish off a semi-circle.
So, for a bit of nostalgia rip it up and start again...
The trials and tribulations of a life of leisure...
