Well, well, well. It seems to me that when you focus and knit on one project exclusively, that said project gets completed in a timely manner. I worked on this knit daily for two weeks and knitted more than what was already completed before my knitting marathon.
Those progress markers work.
I enjoyed this knit and the mindlessness of a 12 row repeat (I think 12 rows). I created this shawl out of my own imagination and used a Barbara Walker pattern dictionary (the first book published). The cloverleaf stitch pattern was a delight to knit.
What made this stitch pattern nice was the simplicity and repeatability of the design and I could knit and watch tv at the same time.
I would definitely recommend the yarn, Manos del uruguay Marina. This single ply yarn was soft and lovely to have in my hands.
