... and now that the wedding part of the Royal Wedding is complete, I'm just popping in as promised with a photo of my mystery-shawl-in-progress:
I absolutely love the way this is looking. I know some people knit tons of shawls for the sheer joy of lace and the beautiful end product, but I find it hard to wear lace, what with not having a remotely elegant lifestyle and all. Even if the rest of this shawl turns out to be very lacy indeed I think I'll be able to pull it off anywhere because of these heavier stitches at the start.
I'll tell you one thing though:
I will be buying a much longer circular needle at the Knitter's Frolic tomorrow. The stitches are already bursting off this 24" one.
It's not too late to join in - two more clues are coming, the first of which won't be published till tomorrow, possibly at the very moment I might be buying another skein of shawl-friendly yarn, heh.
... and now back to the TV for Balcony Watch. And some serious propping up of eyelids because my goodness, I am not a morning person let alone a 5am in the morning person.
