Startitis! Beach Glass Shawl

In the past couple of weeks I've put 3 items OTN (2 pairs of socks and a shawl) and knit a bunch of mini-socks - (the mini-socks are addicting, let me tell you, but I have taken a break from them).

It's not much to look at, but it's the first 8 rows of the Beach Glass Shawl as promised:
I've worked all evening, the past two evenings getting this far. Sounds like very little, right? Consider that I also tinked 1/2 a pattern row twice. Consider also that the cast on was 388 stitches, so each row, while decreasing, is really long. REALLY long.

That's Jaggerspun Zephyr 2/18 wool/silk in colorway Ice (from Knitter's Knook, so there are those memories surfacing as I knit, too - Hi, Becky!! That is if you're able to read blogs again from China - I miss you!).

It's been a long week. I'm glad tomorrow is FRIDAY!

I love the blue yarn. So far, it's very pretty. Long rows are the pits I know.

your friend,

Ooh, that is going to be absolutely stunning :) And the one good thing about starting at the long end of a shawl (and getting through that cast-on!) is that the rows keep getting shorter :)

For two evenings, that's a lot of lace output. Pretty!

Wow! That's going to be an incredible shawl; it's already evident. Enjoy the knitting and the weekend. :)

I love the shawl - I may yet have to knit one! In a couple of days I'm posting a project I credit to you :-)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
