This was a lovley knit! A bit different than her usual shawls, but gorgeous.

I used up ALL the yearn - there was about 3 meters left when I had finished the shawl, so I was a wee bet worried there towards the end.

In the forum discussions someone mentioned ‘read your knitting rather than looking at the pattern’. That was a very good tip! After the initial pattern is set, follow the knitting and check with your chart every now and then. I will be a lot easyer then counting and reading your chart all the time.

The real challenge with this shawl, is to have a place long enough to block it properly. Mine clocked in at about 2.75 meters and I didn’t block it very hard. I would expect if you use wires, you might need somwhere longer!
