Slow progress on Brora

I have been doing a few other things lately so the progress on the baby shawl has taken a back seat for a while.  The baby is due in November so I thought I had better get cracking on this job before the baby arrives.

I think the hardest part of the shawl is doing the border as you have to knit 104 points and then join them together before picking up 832 stitches so you can start the rounds.

I am pleased to say that last night I finished the border and picked up the stitches.

I am now on round 3 of 194 rounds. It should go much quicker now.

  1. What a job!!. I started knitting a shawl after 30 years of absence from the needles. At the moment it is just knit and purl stitch! Looking forward to see the progress on this shawl! Barbora
