|Two edges with about 820st picked up. Fun to knit. See more about the shawl on my Ravelry page.|
This is my favorite time of year with both spring and easter. I love the brighter days and the quiet time during the holidays.
And what could be better than to pick up about 820 stitches for a little edge on my rather large shawl? It took some time to pull myself together and now I am so happy to finally have those two edges on my needle. I picked up with a 1.75mm needle and changed to 2mm for the first round and the rest of the edges.
The plan is to knit regularly as I did on the top edge and then to knit words into the inner edges along the sides. I have used excel to get it right.. I could of course just knit with a little less effort. But then again - this is a large work and I want it to be the best I can.
With so many stitches it takes some time. I am thankful to Anne who publish her tutorial for edges for free on her blog. Without that I would have been lost.
So off eating chocolate eggs, knitting some rows and eat more chocolate eggs.
Have a blessed easter!
