Danish Tie-Shawl Progress

It’s kinda hard to tell, but I think I’m at the half-way point. I’ve thought of getting it off the needle to have a look, but then I just knit another row or two.

Danish Tie Shawl 5-16-2008 8-35-21 AM

For some parts I think I’m right on needle-wise, but for other I think I could’ve gone up a size or two. At least the wind won’t be whipping through this baby.

I’m a professional quilter and maker of pretty things.

  • It looks really fabulous! I didn’t really resist the call of the singles very long. They are dry and wound up already. I figure I could at least cast on and start a bit so that it’ll count as mindless knitting when I need 😉

  • I love the shawl. I copied your picata recipe. if you need picata fast and don’t feel the urge to cook Trader Joe’s has a piccata simmer sauce that’s pretty good and preety fast. Around here fast beats good most of the time. until next time…

  • Well, that would be just the colorway I love,
    happy to see another beautiful tie shawl.

  • I love your colors! I took mine off the needles part way thru by threading half of the stitches onto a cotton yarn. I finished tonight with a suspended bind off and am not sure if I have the full shape. The ends are long enough to tie at the back after going around my shoulders and then around my waist.

    Question: there is an increase on either side of the center 3 stitches and an increase at the outer two edges after a 3-stitch border? Or was that two increases at each of the outer two edges? Help!?! Thank you!!! pj
