A few months ago I started knitting up the Shipwreck Shawl (a free pattern from Knitty amazingly), which was swiftly christened the Epic shawl by my mum on the basis that a) it was going to take quite a long time – given that I’m using 1500m of laceweight, and b) Shipwreck Shawl is something of a tongue-twister if you aren’t paying attention.
So far I’ve managed to complete the central lace section – with some errors but I can live with those.
Last night I started stringing beads…. and promptly dropped a few dozen on the carpet.
Beads get everywhere – did you know that?
