Blimey. I'd still be casting on, ripping out, casting on, ripping out......

Very pretty too.

Mary said...

I LOVE this one - although on me it would be a headscarf!

librarygirl said...

...and I'm still struggling with casting on!

Tania said...

OK, now you're just showing off. You knitty whiz, you.

wooohooooo!!!!
WTG girl!!!

Janet said...

Beautiful!. This is the winter of the shawl isn't it.

I still can't manage to cast on and get the required number of stitches going. And my rib turns into moss stitch with annoying frequency. Sigh.

On the up side, I will be able to learn from or at least bask in the glory of the knitting masters soon. So soon!!!.

Jen said...

You're doing this just to bug me. I know it.

Bells said...

I've never knitted a shawl before, I think this could be a good starter. Thanks for the link...gee I love a good free PDF!!

WOW!I am speechless, still knitting my husband a jumper that is 15 years in the making!! Lucky he is a very patient man:)

Apple Tree Dream said...

That's fast. I wonder if you are one of those people, who can do all sorts of other things while knitting.

Mindy said...

Just beautiful. I'm hazarding a guess that you don't live with a cat. That lovely silk would be chewed to pieces in minutes in this house.

You are seriously speedy on the sticks...as you know - love the colour x

Kate said...

It is divine! The colour, the pattern, the speed...I love and am in awe of it all. I so need to learn how to knit properly. Have a great weekend.

Bet you were the best be-shawled lady in Victoria on Tuesday.

Catherine said...

I love seeing the fruits of your labour. Beautiful!

Meggie said...

Gorgeous! And speedy!!

That's really nice, you could start a trend with these. Did you make up the pattern yourself or did you see it somewhere else? Great for chilly climates. You could post the pattern here... :-)

And the blocking, that is what I am most impressed by. Lovely.
