My first shawl...

I did it.  I knitted my first shawl.  Zippy is impressed.
Due to my toe injury I had plenty of time for sitting and knitting (and watching lots of Horrible Histories).  Every two rows equals an increase in ten stitches.
Perfect for a spreadsheet.  I knitted approximately 3,500 stitches per day for seven days. 
I used the Drops 120-19 pattern, though decided against the crochet border, as I like it just the way it is.  And next... another shawl!


  1. What a lovely shawl! The colors are great.

    And oh my gosh! That chart is brilliant. I always feel like I'm making such speedy progress on shawls until I hit about day 4 and realize I'm knitting hundreds of stitches each row!

  2. I know that feeling! I've just cast on 299 stitches for my next shawl... I can just look forward to the fact that the rows will get shorter - eventually!
