Mystic Light Swatch


I haven't started knitting the Mystic Light shawl yet but I have reknit the swatch a couple of times. This is my first attempt at what I consider real lace, my first provisional cast on and my first time reading a chart. I missed a cable, changed needle sizes a couple of times and made a few unintentional design changes but other than that I think I am ready to start knitting the shawl. I found in knitting the swatch that I need the house quiet and maybe even empty to do this very well. That may mean this is a very long term project.

Don't feel bad. I haven't gotten beyond the swatch either. I agree, I will need total peace and quiet to work on this shawl. I have too many other projects I'm working on to totally focus on this one, so I will be waiting to start too.
