There haven’t been many knitting-related posts from me lately as I haven’t been able to knit for a while. The RSI in my right wrist has flared up and I’m having to avoid non-essential movement. Sadly, knitting counts as non-essential. Not sure who’s classification that was…
Anyway, on Monday I was feeling a bit better so I sneakily started a new project – the gorgeous Gail (aka Nightsongs) shawl from MaweLucky (Ravelry link – free pattern!).
I first came across this shawl in real life on someone actually called Gail, and was really struck by the pattern – and it didn’t look insanely complicated. Flushed with the success of the Brandywine Shawl, I tracked down the pattern. I’m using my final skein of lovely, lovely Colinette Jitterbug, left over from the anatomical heart project.
It certainly takes a lot more concentration than Brandywine – no huge panel of mindless garter stitch in the middle – but it’s going OK so far. Here’s a quick pic, although it doesn’t really look very promising at this stage:
