11.16 I can finally call it done, since I blocked and photographed it yesterday. It was my first time using blocking wire, which I loved! Thanks to Needled Fig for helping me with the wire. It made such a difference!

3.24.14 I finished the shawl last week (BO on row 101). I have a tiny amount of yarn left, but there was nothing in my stash that would work to finish the last rows (which is why I decided to bind off early). Just need to block!

1.13.14 Twenty rows to go!

1.9.14 Inserted a lifeline (my first ever) at row 85. About to start THE ROW. Fingers crossed!

1.8.14 Picked this back up after a holiday hiatus. Six rows left before the dreaded row. Also? I’m a little concerned I won’t have enough yarn to finish the last chart.

11.24.13 I am working my way through chart three, third repeat! I had one mistake on row 62, but tinked back (two rows) to fix it.

11.22.13 Started chart 3 this morning.

11.21.13 Started for the third time this week. Doing a KAL with knottygnome. Hopefully, I can get it right this time! Finishing chart one today.

Not sure what the problem was, but I kept making mistakes. I decided to shelf it for now.

10.10.12 I’ve started again, and just finished the second chart.

I love this shawl so far, but I have to restart. A mistake I made a while back has turned into a bigger one, and I will feel better if I start again.
