So not only am I doing the MS3, but all thought I’d do this from Goddess
The shawl is going to be huge!! Far bigger than any others I’ve done…and I’ve never done a round one which is great too!
Basic info was:
- Approx 6-7oz (1900-2200yds) JaggerSpun Zephyr
- Size 6 (4mm) double points, 16″ and 24″ circular needles
- Stitch markers
Zephyr was a bit pricey to risk on an unknown so opted for a Cherry Tree Hill Merino Lacweight in Java!! 2400yards for £22(!) Zephy would have been around £36 for the same amount!!
After a few false starts – thanks to trying to distribute 8 stitches over 4 DPN’s, various different needle options shiny boyes (3.75mm too slippy), bamboo (4mm – too big), circs (a mess)….
Visited shop and bought a few other Brittany birch DP options cast on in 3.25 yay – it worked… did 11 rows – decided they were too small….
Recast on again in 3.5’s – and they seem to be great!!!
Have just managed to get onto circs (as DPN’s were a pain in the **** trying to do YO’s cross needles – ARGH!), so now onto 20″ boyes… and fingers crossed….
At around 26 rows I think now……and going to put a safety line in before I progress any further 🙂
