This is the third pattern I’ve worked from this book, and also the third Sheila January pattern. I really like her designs.
The yarn is luscious, and the shawl, so far, is working up great. I’ve run into a snag at row 41 and have done some tinking. It still doesn’t seem right so I need to do a little more investigating to see where the problem is.
This is working up quite quickly, though, so I think I will have it completed sooner than I had thought.
I’m waiting for pattern and yarns to arrive in the mail for two more lace shawls that I’m going to do over the summer for a Summer of Lace Knit Along on Ravelry.
One of my knitting group friends offered to teach me drop spindling, so I spent a little over an hour at her house yesterday feeling like a total klutz. But she actually said I was doing better than many other beginners she had taught.
She sent me home with a spindle and a big bunch of roving, so hopefully I’ll have a little bit of progress to show by tomorrow.
