I got the crazy idea a few weeks ago that this would be my Rhinebeck project. I started in May, but didn't do much of it over the summer (it's not a portable project).
Now I'm on a strict regimine of at least 4 rows a day to get this done with enough time to block it and crochet the edging. The i-cord ties may get knit in the car or not completed until I'm back from Rhinebeck, but I will be sporting this shawl as I frolic with friends and buy fibre.
I'm on the penultimate motif and it's a bit of a slog. When I say 4 rows a day, I should say that each row is over 500 sts long. I'm doing colourwork and I'm knitting the purl-side rows "backwards" or left handed--something I'm getting better at, but slow.
Not sure how to knit left handed? I made a little video
It's not so hard once you get used to it (being left handed doesn't hurt either!)
I just need to get past this part and it's smoother sailing (those blocks of 3 single coloured rows are heaven).
Here's where I'm at:
