I finally laid the shawl out in the daylight and got a good photo. Passing the half way point really makes it seem like the knitting is going faster. I’m so happy I kept knitting. To be honest there were a couple of points back at the beginning I was cursing the yarn*, the pattern and my knitting ability. I’m glad I hung on and kept going. Now I’ve just got to coast to the end.
*On my phone the color of the yarn looks more blue than it is in real life. It’s more of a dark purple with highlights of pale purple to gray.
