Well after about an hour of trying to figure out how to do a provisional cast on, I succeeded (I think ) in getting my Luna on the needles. I am using KnitPicks ShineSport in Coral, its very light and soft and a pleasure to work with. No splitting, as of yet. This is my second attempt at a shawl. The first time I took the easy way out and avoided any of this top-down, provisional cast on nonsense. ANyway, so far so good. I made it through the first repeat. Enjoy the pics! I shall return when there is more to report
The first picture is more indicative of the true color than the second for those who are interested.
