New Shawl Knitter

Hello everyone,

Here is my work-in-progress on the Seraphim shawl. I am just starting chart #1. I have never knitted a lace shawl before, so I am very nervous about the charts and everything. Before I start the chart I am going to run a life-line. Just in case! The yarn I am using is GB Wolle Cosy Socks. I have never used it before but it seems to knitting up just fine. The color is black.

I am very happy to be a part of this KAL. And I will look forward to seeing all the finished shawls.

Till later.

Ooh, Angie! You are braver than I am. Black! I've read that it will help immensely if you keep something white on your lap while knitting with black.

Seriously, use the lifeline until you are comfortable. I've finished 3 lace shawls now and have only had to use it a couple of times. I'm working on a Hanging Garden stole and have not felt the need for a lifeline this time around, BUT, I count stitches on every purl row. If I've missed a YO or put in one too many, it's easy to catch and fix on that next row. And take your time. I've found that I only goof up when I'm rushing or being distracted.

I need to get back to my second Seraphim. It took a back seat while I finished a Diamond Fantasy and an Adamas.
