Shawl Knitting Biathlon - First event DONE!
OK, so I'm exhausted! I cast on this shawl (which is Cozy from knitty.com) using 9 full skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a dark red just as the opening ceremony started on Friday, 10 February at 2:00 ET. I just finished at 10:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, 12 February. I'm beyond tired....
Meanwhile, now that this shawl is done (except for a wash and dry), I'll be taking a day to rest my hands and will start the Leaf Lace shawl on Tuesday using the Cleckheaton DK yarn shown here.
Given that I can make one of these in a week without much difficulty, I think it shouldn't be a problem. I had considered doing the Triathlon of Shawl Knitting and then realised just how silly that was!
