Knitting 87: French style
The Knitter 29: kitchener stitch and highlights

11 in 11 - two down

I've decided to take on a bit of a knitting challenge this year. I've come across a couple of groups on Ravelry where the aim is to knit 11 shawls or scarves in 2011. One #11in11 just calls for 11 pieces of neck wear while 11 shawls in 2011 has stricter rules around what constitutes a shawl and meterage.

So far I've completed two that fit both projects but I've decided to make it harder on myself. My personal challenge is to see how far I can get with my 11 with yarn that was in my stash on 1 Jan 2011.

I'll update through the year, but here are the first two - Happy Diamonds and Peacock Blue.
