So now I have finished the bag I have started the Dragonfly wings for the knit-along with the cwtch. I have never done a knit-along, never knitted a shawl, never knitted lace and never knitted with this type of yarn before - so its a bit of a new experience all round!
It took me quite a while to get going, casting on lots of time before I settled on needles and type of cast on. Ended up starting with bamboo DPNs and a simple cast on. The yarn is lovely but is very slippy (! specialist term) and a bit fluffy. Now I am underway it is ok and have changed back to normal needles. Will move to circular needles when I get more stitches. There are a few mistakes but I think I can get away with them given the nature of the yarn/pattern - we will see!
Anyway, will see if I can shake this cold and maybe get a few more rows done.
Have a lovely weekend :)
