Louet Gems sport weight, two size 3 circulars, 48 stitches. Leg in Baby Cable rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. I tried knitting during Davidson losing in the last seconds, and couldn't decide whether to watch the action or my knitting. This was a lot of time invested for a very small return; I'm hoping that the rest of the sock goes faster and more pleasurably.
And me, knitting a shawl, fast. Amazing. I started on a Swallowtail yesterday, finally using the Handmaiden Lady Godiva that I splurged on several months ago. I managed 7 or 8 repeats of the first chart while listening to several audio discs of The Serpent on the Crown. This morning, I worked through about 3 more repeats. I'm wondering if I can use the structure of this shawl and plug in different patterns with the same number of stitches in a repeat, as a way to try designing a shawl. I'm much more visual and hands-on when I'm learning, and graphing and counting stitches on paper hasn't got me going yet.
