Knitting Olympics Day 1

current mood: intimidated

Okay, so Day 1 isn't even over yet. I've been taking it really slow since this pattern is proving to be a royal pain in many ways. I'm not sure if it's the needles, the pattern or the yarn (couldn't be me! Nope!) but it's proving to be a bit sticky and icky. I've finished clue 1 now and am wondering if I should thread a life line through the piece. I was worried that it was way too small for... 36 rows of knitting, but looking at other people's completed work... I now know where this part is in the overall shawl and so hopefully it won't be too *big*. 0_0; I took some photos of the various projects I'm working on and ULed them to my gallery so if you're curious what I'm talking about, everything actually started is shown. ^^;

Most likely, I'll take photos of the shawl at the main cut-offs (ie at the end of each clue) so we'll see how things go. I've read and re-read the destructions for clue 4 and I still have no idea what it's saying. I can see what it's doing, but I don't understand how to do it. -_-;;

Anyhow, I should get back to knitting. I like the way the shawl's supposed to look in the end, and I'm reasonably happy with how things are going, I just wish that the yarn would move more smoothly on these needles. >_<; And of course, the one size the female sibling does NOT have in regular circulars is the 3.5mm. I'll have to see if she has any other 3.5 mm circulars.

Commentator: And it's a lovely beginning from Team Shadow. It may seem like not much, but something as stunning as a lace shawl has very humble beginnings. I think she's off to a good start.

Colour Commentator: And it looks good on the needles.

Commentator: ??? … *crickets*

Cheers and good luck to you too! ^___^ BTW, would it be okay for me to friend your crafty journal? I assume you post more knitty stuffs in there than your regular journal.
