|Here are some details about my project:|
|Yarn Weight||Fingering (4 ply)|
What are you most proud of? Being a selfconscious knitter it took me a year to attempt the Skywalker. To be on the safe side I bought a good quality standard sock yarn, I could always rip the disaster and use the yarn for socks. Apart from attaching the wrong size needles to my wire and using them for the first third of the project, having to rip and start over again, the rest of the shawl went smoothly (with a bit of tinking and fixing).And I can't believe I'm there now - I did it! I can knit a lace shawl.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't throw it in the bin. Block itUse the safeguards - life line, markers, counting your stitches between of repeats, tink back and fix the mistakes at once, because you'll forget were they were, if you try to fix them on the purl side.And check that you can get an extra skein or ball of your yarn, should you run short.I did halfway through the edging and luckily the yarn was from the dry cleaner's just down the road.
