Or OMG – like, knitting, right?
I’ve never made a circular shawl before but, confident / arrogant as ever I thought "How difficult can it be?"…
I started with Emily Ocker’s circular cast on (beautifully detail here).
Somehow, I manage to twist my knitting into something hideous, so out it came.
Going back to the tried-and-tested circular cast-on method I went to Judy and her magic.
Not once, not twice, but three times!
Having finally decided that I had to do this ONE. STEP. AT. A. TIME., I colour-coded my needles with my highlighter pens and started again.
Emily Ocker’s cast-on and actually watching what I was doing did the trick and bingo!
Note the Willam Shatner-esque girdle ’round the ball of yarn.
Looks a bit like Olympus Mons!
First clue for the Goddess Anniversary Mystery Shawl a.k.a. the Choose Your Own Adventure Shawl, she is done!
Anticipating that the "Clues" will get more complex I started marking the symbols with different coloured highlight pens.
Hopefully I’ll come to associate a colour with an action and this should speed the process up (in theory).
