|The first rounds of a big shawl with birds.|
I bought the kit in Oslo here in Norway - and I´ve finally knitted the first rounds. It´s a huge work - and need a lot of preparation.

I got six colors for the pattern and seven colors for the background in the kit.
I´m randomly changing colors while knitting. In that way there are no order in color changes and that makes the shawl fun to knit and to look at.
Starting at the bottom with only three stitches there should be nearly 600 stitches when i reach the top of the shawl. You get the picture? I´m knitting in the round all the way up, and then sewing with machine and cutting up the shawl. Easy that way.
This is a huge challenge for me. And if I hadn´t been on Ravelry to see, learn and to ask experienced knitters it would have been so much more challenging. But here I am - with my knitting needles and a lot of patience, yarn and love for this wonderful shawl.
There are no such joy than to create something from the heart - the one of yarn:
