Shawl Geometry Book 3 is (briefly) off my desk!

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at. Shawl Geometry Book 3 is off my desk and to the marvelous Holly Priestley technical editor extraordinaire for the first round of technical edits!!! Huzzah! But that does mean there was a bit of a scramble to finish tying up the loose ends before I sent it off.
