Oblique: Having a slanting position or direction; neither perpendicular nor horizontal; not level or upright; inclined.Isn't that a perfect knitting description??? This way if things get a little crooked, you just say..."well, after all, it IS an Oblique Shawl!!
I am using "Invernal" wool which is 50% angora, 25% merino wool and 25% polyamide. It's hard to describe when you are telling someone on the phone about the little kangaroo-pouch-pass through that secures the front. I hope picture clears up any confusion :) I am knitting this in a neutral green shade, and hoping it turns out to be as ample on me as it is on the skinny model!
