Pattern is Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Valimaki.
Yarn - 4ply Ella Rae Lace Merino MC - Chartreuse green (400m) CC - variegated grey (400m)
At first had problems starting - totally my brain was the problem. After a couple of emails and posting questions on Ravelry, I found that I was over thinking the pattern. Hint: the W&T marker moves in different positions as you knit, what I was doing was actually placing more than one marker - WRONG - it's the same marker, it just moves along the work, as you knit the rows. Also, RS - is an increase row and the WS is the W&T row. I can now knit without looking or ticking which row I'm on - great for the train trips to work.
|Progress so far|
The colour of the yarn looks a more yellow, but it is in fact green - need to practice my photographic skills a bit better. I am really enjoying this pattern - it's so interesting to knit and I love my circular needles. I only started knitting with circular needles last year for the first time, and at first was not sure, but I really love them now. So much so, that I've invested in Addi Lace Click Interchangeable Needle Set, which should be on an airplane somewhere over the pacific, as I type. Can't wait to hear that knock on the door -"postie here".
Have also started a charcoal grey and blue Stripe Study Shawl - this one is for me. The green one is for my sister.
