My Flower Basket Shawl for the Knitting Olympics is coming along quite nicely. I have just completed the 8th repeat of the lower flower basket chart. The pattern calls for only 7 repeats, but I wanted a larger shawl, so I am going to go with either 12 or 14 repeats. If I do 12 repeats, then I am 48% complete. If I go for 14 repeats, I would be 38% complete. I'll see how it goes. I'm using KnitPicks Essential & really like this yarn. It has a nice spongy feel to it.
This has turned out to be an extremely easy knit. Maybe too easy for the olympics? My biggest challenge is completing this on time, so I guess it still counts.
