Last year i knitted a shawl… it was the first thing i ever knitted using a pattern. It took me 6 months and was quite a slog. Each row had 122 stitches, often i would start to knit a row and regret it very quickly, then struggle on to the end of the row and then give up for the rest of the day! BUT little and often, and now i have a beautiful shawl and a huge sense of acheivement! I have not knitted anything since i finished it late November 2007… it may be some time before i knit again! I have only worn it out three times so far, but it is good to save it for swanky occasions! It is also quite handy as a blanket for napping in other people’s houses, as it is nearly as big as me when spread out flat!
