KnittingHelp Monthly Challenge - February
This month's challenge will be...

SHAWLS!

Shawls are extremely versatile projects. They come in a variety of shapes, styles, and can be worked with any yarn you please, from laceweight to bulky.

They can also be done in a variety of stitches, from lace to cables, and can be worked in any shape - circular, square, triangular and spiraled.

There are many patterns available from Knitting Pattern Central, Schoolhouse Press, as well as from many books.

I will be knitting Meg Swansen's Spiral Shawl, available from Schoolhouse Press.

Good luck, I'll be available every day to answer questions!

Ooooh, ooooh oooh! I just finished one of elann's patterns, have started another and bought a bunch of laceweight and fingering for some more. Some of which I haven't decided yet which pattern to use. I'll be checking in here to see how it goes.

Now that sounds like a very cool looking shawl. Bethoveen happens to be one of my favourite composers

I am trying to work up the courage to cast on for a Adamas shawl. I have bought some lace weight Malabrigo yarn which I absolutely adore. still trying to figure out what all the little symbols mean

There should be a key for the chart... It takes a bit to learn to read them at first.
