It took me 10 days to knit the lace edging on the first side of the Stonington Shawl.....and 5 days to knit the edging on the second side. Does that mean that it will take me 2 1/2 days to knit the next section? I wish! We shall see.....

I just picked up stitches for the 4th border on my Stonington Shawl. YaHoo! I could have had the 4th border done by now if not for having to frog back several times on the 3rd border to find and fix a mistake in stitch count. Arrgghhhh. Hopefully, I can knit the entire border section today and be ready to start the lace edging tomorrow. I ordered a set of blocking wires yesterday and they should arrive by the time I need them. Don't you just love toys....er....tools?

Two years ago, next month, I started the Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today. I got all the way to round 129 and realized there was a mistake in my knitting. Try as I could, I was not able to figure out where the problem was, and so I let it snooze away in the bottom of my knitting basket. I came across it earlier looking for a knitting needle, and.....Voila!
My courage has returned. I frogged back several inches and got everything back on the needles where I know the pattern is correct. I am ready to roll again. By the way, if you happen to be a Ravelry enthusiast, there are tons of examples of the Cap Shawl to view.
