Yes, the edging. This is one huge shawl as it stands 200 x 103 cm , and I don't really like the original edging anyway. So I stopped after Row 166 and knitted the traditional scalloped edging.
My thoughts on knitting this shawl:
- It's easier on my eyes, copy & enlarge the charts. I marked the row numbers after Row 49 all the way to 145.
- Beware of K2tog's & SSK's on chart 2, especially row 43 & 45. I have made a number of errors, although I managed to fix them without having to rip out stitches.
- While knitting, be sure that you could knit without being disturbed. Row counter & life line certainly would help. Since I did not use life line. there were times I feared that I might have to frog the whole thing.
As my next project (for work) will take me to York, England starting Oct. 6 for 5 weeks, return to Canada for 1 week and then back to York again for 5 and a half weeks for the remainder of the year, as well as other obligations, I will not be knitting any Japanese design till around Xmas time.
However, I will check e-mails and visit this KAL daily so that I would feel I still belong.
