. . . is how fast it grows in the beginning. I cast on for Peacock Feathers last Friday and already I am almost done with chart two. Yes, impressive. And even more impressive considering there is a chart 1 and a chart 1A. I’m working the shawl on US 4 needles in Zephyr — the same set-up I used for the Frost Flowers & Leaves shawl — and the soft, familiar yarn is a welcome change from the cotton dishcloth I’ve been making. I’m sure I’ll be sick of it before too long, but for the moment it’s going well and I’m happy to be working on another “big” project.
