That was quick!

I thought I should show you some progress on the Diamond Lace Fantasy Shawl...like before I show you the FO.



It knits up really quickly. The pattern is easy to follow. I can't say that I have memorized it...I just need to glance at the beginning of the row. You can also easily catch mistakes as you knit....yes I do make mistakes. (can you see the one I didn't fix? I really caught it late...and...and...well...you can hardly see it)
I have had to tink back a couple times...no big deal.

It is now a "scarf" size...6 repeats of the main pattern. I could stop here because Great Nonna is so little...a scarf may be a shawl on her! I'll do another repeat and then check my yarn situation. I think seven repeats is all I will get out of it, along with the icord edging....

Wow. You're amazing. Just cranking stuff out right and left. It's very nice and I love a pattern that you can read as you knit it.

Well, if you didn't put the mistake front and center, it wouldn't be noticeable at all!

It is absolutely gorgeous. You are amazingly fast!

OMG, you really need to stop that! Just yesterday it was a teeny tiny little thing, and now it's almost done! Your progress makes me look like such a slacker ;).

I'd say that was record time. It's very pretty!
