World Cup Knitting #1

I needed a knitting project to do while the World Cup was on; something relatively simple that I could work on without really having to concentrate on it; and this shawl pattern (Curlew by Claire Slade) seemed to fit the bill.


I changed the way the central increases were worked because I found it easier to keep track of this way (remember I needed it to be as mindless as possible), and extended the pattern and just kept going until I'd used the wool. It is knitted using a single ball of James C Brett "Northern Lights".
The fact that it is now finished shows, I think, precisely how much time I have spent watching the football over the last 3 weeks.
World Cup knitting #2 is already progressing nicely.

Your knitting looks fabulous!
We watched quite a lot of the footie here, although disappointed when England went out, we had to watch it to the end!
It was a good excuse to get some of my sewing done!
