I'm done with the main body of the shawl now, and am on to working the knitted on edging. This is a brand new technique that I'm learning and am loving it. It is worked back and forth in garter stitch perpendicular to the edge of the shawl counterclockwise while "eating up" live stitches when I get to the them with a k2tog. Brilliant!! It is going to take a couple of days to finish, as I have 640 stitches to "eat up". And I'm resisting the urge to finish it quickly because I want to savor every last stitch of this yummy cashmere/merino blend.
