A beginning

I started a new shawl today. I've been wanting to start this project since I bought the book Handknit Holidays a few years ago. Its a pattern called the Swedish Heart Warmer Shawl. I bought the yarn from Knit Picks last month, and got the knitting needles from them yesterday.Photobucket The shawl has a sun motif near the neck but I'm replacing that with the Flame of Tar Valon. Also I'm using Gray instead of yellow so this will be one of my Aes Sedai shawls.
I worked on it for an hour today, and want to work on it at least an hour every day. I'm going to try and take a picture of it each day after I work on it so I can chronicle how it grows.
I probably won't blog the change every day, but I'll at least show the pictures as I go.

I think the photo-a-day idea is brilliant. You're so terribly talented with those needles! I've finished a couple baby sweaters but nothing so complicated as a shawl.

Also, can I petition for a Harry Potter tie? Maybe in red and gold? ;)

You're wonderful, and I miss you, my friend.
