Progress Report?

I'm curious how those still knitting away on the shawl are doing. Just because some of us have finished does NOT mean we aren't interested in your progress! Please let us know!

Finally I blocked my shawl which has been done for 2.5 months! Here are some pictures. It was knit with some Knit Picks Dye Your Own, which I had purchased from someone on eBay who had done a lovely job dyeing it. It's quite a large shawl, about 48" long and 96" wide. That sounds humongous, but on a larger person it fits nicely, wrapping around without being skimpy. This will be gifted through my shawl ministry. There are more pictures and info on my blog if you are interested in knowing/seeing more. Keep knitting's really nice when done and I think I'm going to knit another one for me! :o) Posted by Picasa

Almost finished

I am almost finished my shawl. I found an error a few rows back, but just unraveled the stitches involved and redid it, then cut and knotted to get rid of the extra yarn (I had left out a decreace). I'm up to about 200 stitches now, so five or six rows - I'm not unravelling 1,200 stitches, uh uh, no way. It turns out I inserted the decreaces a couple of rows too soon, but I don't care. A blind man would be glad to see it...

I'll post a picture when I'm finished.....
