It looks a little sad now - but I am very proud of the fact I figured out some very difficult stitches (and using a chart no less.)
The yarn I am using is Classic Merino Supersock by Knitting Notions in Azure and Pumpkin Spice.
I am finished with the first 70 rows of the shawl now - the easy part and am getting ready to work from charts - a very new experience for me.
|Currently at 233 stitches - a circular needle with a longer cord will be required soon.|
The only problem I can see with the pattern is that it starts with 5 stitches and at the end there are 545stitches. So every row takes longer, and longer, and longer . . .
