I've started knitty's heart scarf as well. I'm using a mohair blend. It's a fairly easy lace pattern to memorize and it's knitting up very quickly. I think it'll look much better after it's blocked but here's the wip:
When I'm knitting something with too many sts. for just a set of straight needles, I use circular needles. You just don't join the project in the round and you treat each end of the circular needles as if they were a separate straight needle. The part that joins them is a great place for all of your sts. to rest.
Are you kidding me, you finished knitting this gorgeous shawl in 5 days? I have the book, 'Wrap Syle' as well, but when I looked at this shawl, I thought it would take far too long. Thanks, you've made me reconsider.
Oooh I think you've started something here. The original Lady Eleanor is gorgeous, but I think I'd get a lot more use out of your narrower scarf version and it wouldn't be as tedious to knit. The kitties seem to like it a lot too. lupinbunny, I hope you get three balls!
Lothruin, I just wanted to let you know what a great job I think you're doing as Knitting Moderator. We really do appreciate all of the time and effort that you put into it. The knitting challenges are a great idea. Hope you're enjoying doing it as well.
Gorgeous bracelet! Could you tell us how you made it? I live over 1200 miles away from you, so if I made it, you would never have to come into contact with it. I would, however, add it to your post to show you how it turned out if I could actually complete it.
