Since returning from Kangaroo Island I have been working in the evenings on a triangular knitted shawl, using some two ply wool in my stash from Bendigo Woollen Mills.The pattern is a flower basket one I bought from Knitty City in New York in 2009.
The two ply is a little heavier than the original lace weight and should give quite a different look.
My preference when knitting triangular shawls is to start at the wide end and decrease - it's encouraging to be getting faster on each row. This pattern, however, works from the point up - so lengthwise progress is slower. It is a 10 row pattern and after about 30 rows I started using markers to keep my place.
In preparation, I bought more ring markers. If I continue to the large shawl, there are 78 pattern repeats in the longest pattern row. Although I had a supply of clip markers and split ring markers,
