Moonlight Sonata started


Made it through the first pattern repeat yesterday. I had some trouble with the Double Inc instructions and didn't like the way mine looked. I consulted Montse Stanley to no avail so I just made them the only way I know how. K1, K1tbl, K1 all in the same stitch.

The Baby Silk is a pleasure to knit. I am glad I made the Swallowtail first or I would not have had the gumption to try this pattern.

that will be stunning and I bet it feels like butter!

You are off to a great start! I love that color. You are much braver than I. I like patterns that give you a "break" on every other row (i.e. purl the wrong side.) Looking forward to more progress shots. Happy knitting!

What a strikingly beautiful color! Great looking start!

That color will look amazing with your coloring! Bet it feels good to work with too. Like Kelly, I need the break in a lace pattern to pulr a row back. Gives me a fighting chance when tinking.

Very nice color! This pattern is absolutely gorgeous.

Looks like a good start. Am looking forward to seeing more. I thought about doing Moonlight Sonata for about 10 secs before I realized it was too ambitious for a first shawl.
