Green shawl - the beginnings

Three times I started it. Clearly I needed to pay more attention. I was distracted. First it was late one evening, then it was early on the train into work. I don't perform well if I'm feeling tired you see...


A good few hours later and this is what I've got... I'm thinking this is going to take me an absolute age to finish, and I'm really going to have to try very very hard to have it done in time for Christmas. There's a challenge if I've ever set myself one. So no reading on the train, commuting time is strictly Knitting Time.


Before I go, I'd like to say a massive thank you to a very helpful blog friend. I was hoping she might be able to help me at a time of need late one evening because she has an iphone. And I was hoping she would be like me if I had an iphone, and that would be to keep an eye on comments coming through on my blog. I'm so grateful to have this knitting blog help at hand. Mooncalf, thank you and your wonderful iphone. How about that for a 24/7 knitting helpline :-)

It looks very pretty, I hope you manage once all the stitches are on the needles.

It already looks very snuggly, so things can only get better.

Well, it is only an iPod really but it does come in handy!

I think you'll find you speed up as you get used to the pattern. You'll be done before you know it.

I knit on my commute too but I also make it 'reading time' by listening to audiobooks. Much more relaxing that listening to the chatter or my fellow passengers :)
