Despite my case of startitis I have managed to complete something. This shawl is SusannaIC's January Mystery KAL. I am a great fan of her designs and intend to knit many more.
The yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 2ply which has been hand dyed by a fellow Raveler, Ozifarmer. I knitted the shawl on 4.5mm needles and added silver lined Matsuno beads 8/0. We had the option of adding beads when doing the short rows or nupps. I opted to add the beads.
This was a lovely shawl to knit. The worst part is the cast on. Its never easy to cast on so many stitches but I have found this video very helpful when doing a stretchy cast on. I have now used this cast on for several shawls and although its a bit slow I find that it is truly stretchy and you don't have to work out how much yarn you need as you would for a long tail cast on.
Now back to focussing on those wips and perhaps just one more cast on?
