The Daily Purl

a shawl knit in the round

The Shetland tea shawl has taken up residence on the kitchen table. (My knitting always gets the best real estate.) Despite how much I knit this week, the shawl still looks like an extra large shower cap. It’s starting to grow up. And it’s wrinkly. Doesn’t sound pretty. Doesn’t look pretty. I like watching a project take shape. You walk by it on your way out the door. Or stand and look at it for a moment before you put away the groceries. A shawl knit in the round doesn’t offer this daily change. But working on the last chart, with yo’s, k2tog’s and ssk’s every row, has made up for the lack of big-picture progress. So this is knitted lace!
