the travelling woman shawl is knitting up vair quickly! i don't know if it is because the pattern is so simple, or because the qiviut is un-put-down-able. a bit of both maybe. i hope there is a knitted shawl category at the fenelon falls fair!

my mods for this pattern: i wanted more lace/less stockinette (partly because i know i'm doomed to run out of yarn), so i started with 9 pattern repeats across instead of 11, and am now halfway through my third repeat of chart "a", hoping to do four before i start chart "b." also, i'm doing my decreases slightly differently; instead of s1 k2tog psso, i'm doing s2tog, s1, k3tog because i find it's more symmetrical.
