Edging towards the end
I am now at the edging stage of my shawl knitting. It isn't going as quickly as before because I need to look at what I am doing to get my purl-two-together-through-the-back-loops to work out. I tend to overlook how much I use my fingernails to help with decreases. As soon as I cut my nails short I find it much more difficult to knit lace patterned things. It doesn't help that when I went down a needle size for the edging as the pattern asks I traded my pointy lace addis for my less pointy normal addis.
Aside from the slower progress, I'm loving how this is going. A couple more days and I should me able to block and wear this.
