The pattern arrieved this week. It is a lovely booklet with lots of information on Shetland shawls. The 2007 release has a square version and two different center patterns to chose from.
I started knitting with Shetland Supreme one ply and 1.5 mms needles. Knit two points and did not like the cloth, it was too dense. I like it a lot better with 2 mms needles. So far I have 6 points.
The first batch is 85 points, 29 stitches per row and 20 rows per point. I timed the last two and it takes me 25 minutes to knit 20 rows. That is a minute and a hair per row. It is highly doubtful that I can knit any faster. It all comes down to 40 days for 85 points. Round it up to two months.
My camera is in the shop in its annual cleaning so no pictures for at least 3 weeks.
There is a Ravelry group with plenty of us swatching and deciding on what to do.
Jane has started hers and so has missalicefaye. I bet missalicefaye has a lot more points 5 days later!
This is going to be a long and fun knitting!
