Orenburg Shawl Update

Posted by Avital Pinnick on October 14, 2009

It always takes me a little while to get back to the craft projects that have to be put aside for Sukkot and Passover. Washing the accumulated laundry and packing away sukkah decorations takes priority. I snapped a quick photo of my shawl in progress, from The Gossamer Webs Design Collection.

The main part of the shawl is about 3/4 finished. I haven’t decided how to attach the lace edging to the diagonal edge. The instructions specify Russian grafting, which always makes me nervous because it’s a long chain of linked stitches. If the yarn breaks at some point down the road, the whole edge will part company with the edging. Luc C. knitted the edging to the body as he went along, so I may try that method.
