Weekend Knitting

I haven't had lace on the needles for some time so.....I frogged my 1/2 Janet Shawl so I could reuse this gorgeous (totally my favorite colors) yarn.

I decided to try my luck at Kiri again. I tried her a couple of years ago and just could not get the hang of it! It was a nightmare...even after Polly tried to send me pointers. I am pleased to say it is going really well. I have knit quite a few shawls with lace weight yarn and no can see the "landmarks" within the pattern that tell me if I am off or not. It is strange how well it is going this time considering what a disaster it was a couple of years ago.
I love the colors...now if I could only find a pair of circulars in size 7! I know I have some but I'll be darned if I can find them and I don't like using my Needle Master needles for lace...it seems to catch on the join. I see myself at Micheal's buying a set this afternoon!

I have tried Kiri, but after knitting Birch, it's a bit difficult to do Kiri, even though it's the same shawl, but Birch is starting from the neck, and over 299 sts to begin with. I have the pattern in Norwegian, but it's easy to translate, only 6 rounds that continues. Let me know if you want it.
By the way, wish you luck with the interwiv. Saw the post, but now it's gone again.
