Lately I have been obsessed with shawls. I find it amazing that in all the years I have been knitting I have never made one!
I challenged myself to make one to wear for Mark's brothers wedding which didn't happen sadly (but it was so hot a knitted shawl was the last thing I needed). I have had the gorgeous Bigger on the Inside Doctor Who shawl in my Ravelry favourites for ages so I took the plunge and ordered the yarn. The first part is a lace section which is not good for someone like me as I get distracted very easily and lose my place - which is a disaster. I had to leave it for a few weeks as one row was really causing me a nightmare. Then my lovely friend Marja suggested using stitch markers - so simple but never occurred to me and lo and behold it worked! So I finished the lace section and had the wonderful task of picking up 311 stitches along the edging. I managed it and now I am happy to say that this section is so much fun! So I hope to have it done in a few weeks.
