WIP Wednesday: The Stars

I have nearly completed the next section of the Geology Shawl. This section, the stars, made me a little worried when I first saw it. I’d never done that stitch before and reading the instructions left me even more worried. I wasn’t quite sure what I was doing. Back to Ravelry I went to see what others had done. I found a person who included a link to a YouTube video that showed exactly what to do. In no time I was knitting through the rows. I am pleased with how this section turned out and I think it will look even better when blocked. That means once a do the few transition rows I am on to the final section.

    I love the star stitch. The cowl I made recently uses it. Can’t wait to see your shawl finished.

    YouTube is a godsend for knitters! Also for my husband, the amateur car mechanic. How to rebuild a Volvo carbeurator? YouTube it. How to disassemble Chrysler brakes? YouTube it.
