Shawl update

Jane Austen shawl update: After several attempts to knit it, I had decided that the pattern for attaching/adding/knitting the lace edging was wrong. But the Friday mid morning knitting group straightend me out. What I thought was the bottom is actually the top! I love my knitting group!

I'm using an age old measuring tool to determine how much yarn each lace point will use. I pulled the yarn out as far as my reach will allow 5 times and then knit one repeat of the 8 row pattern. I had just over 1 arm length left. So now I will knit the next point with 4 arm lengths.

Now to knit as fast as I can so that I don't run out of yarn!
