Irish Diamond Shawl Progress Report #9

Here it is in all it's blocked out glory. It took less than 8 balls of yarn to complete (what to do with the leftovers *grins*).

Irish Diamond Shawl Progress Report #8

Soo so close and getting closer every day I work on it. I was asked "How happy are you?". In response I said it is like a real good book, can't wait to complete it but sad to when it ends.

Irish Diamond Shawl Progress Report #7

OMG, I feel like I am so close yet so far from finishing. I completed the first 20 rows of the 2nd lace pattern last night and started the 2nd half. "Toot toot" my own horn.

Irish Diamond Shawl Progress Report #6

Here I am again with another update. Finished with ball #4 with 6 more left, but I'm thinking it will take about 8 1/2 balls to complete.

Opinion, Please.....

I have a friend that is interested in joining this site. A fellow knitter, addicted to the tug of needle & yarn.

Irish Diamond Shawl Progress Report #4

Almost finished off the 2nd ball. I love this pattern, but the monotony can slow progress. On the plus side, with the extra stitch markers I'm using are keeping my frustration level to a minimum.

Almost completed #5 of 14 lace 1 pattern. I've added the green stitch markers and I'll probably add more markers as the pattern grows.
