Shawl with #20 edging

Hi,

I'm knitting this shawl using Kid Silk Haze. I am very excited about all of the projects in this book, which I also got for Christmas. I thought I would start with one where I didn't have to add the edging around all the corners of the shawl. Seems like some people had some problems with that. I'll try to work up to that.

I've been checking this blog every day to see all of the gorgeous projects you've all been working on. Such wonderful work!!

Best,
Martha

Lovely! I just ordered Kid Silk Haze. What size needle did you use?

I used the size 7 needle they called for in the pattern. I started w/ a size 8 since I tend to knit a bit tight, but I thought the stitches needed to be tightened up a bit. Normally I do a gauge swatch, but since it's a shawl and not a fitted garment, I didn't.
