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!
