12/23/2105- I’m a very loose knitter, so I swatched with Size 3 needles - didn’t seem tight enough, have done another in Size 2, will go with that.

12/29/2015 - started the shawl today - after all my questions on the chart, I found that I can knit it pretty easily - glad for the additional notes on the key which keep me in line when I want to go wonky.

Oops, I started with the Size 3 needles after all that swatching. Gonna have to rip out and start again tonight!

1/10/2016 - finished the lace edging, whew!

1/20/2016 - one more row to finish the Bird’s Eye lace pattern!

1/26/2016 - got 22 ridges done knitting very loosely, and did a calculation that I would run out of yarn - had 48 percent of the yarn remaining, but over 50 percent of the knitting left. So, I put in a small circular needle at the beginning of the garter section, ripped out the garter section, and will be knitting that more tightly.

1/30/2016 - finished the knitting - now have a couple of dropped stitched to secure, but I ended up having 11 gr of yarn left, counting the swatches I made.
