Well, I finished Part One of the Summer Mystery Shawl on Sunday. I *thought* I had it finished on Saturday, but then I realized I hadn't done the last purl row of Part One.
You can see what it looked like after I completed Part One of the pattern. I'm so glad I chose to use my size 6 needles after all--I think it's going to be just perfect as long as I don't run out of yarn! I really love the varied blues in this yarn too. So pretty! And if you're wondering what all those little purple and green thingies are--they're stitch markers to help me keep track of the pattern repeats as I knit. I'd be utterly lost without them!
Part Two (aka the second chart) was posted to Wendy Knits Sunday and I got right to work after taking a few photos of my progress. I made it through 8 of the 12 rows Sunday! Doesn't seem like that's much to be excited about? Well, consider that each row has over 200 stitches and maybe you'll see why I'm happy I got that much knitting completed. Sadly, I haven't had any time to work on it since Sunday but I hope to get Part Two done before Wendy posts the next chart on Thursday (aaack! that's tomorrow!).
I'd best get knitting!
