I decided to match clue 2A with my 1B, and 2B with my 1A, which would keep all the lace on one shawl and all the asymmetry on the other. Yesterday I took the train to Warrnambool and back, which gave me ample time to knit these clues. And also to take photos on the classy red train seats.
I found the lace for 2A really really boring - which didn't stop me stuffing it up the first time, and needing to rip, rip rip.
I like the idea of the garter wedges for 2B, but I'm not sure about how they actually look. I keep on telling myself to trust the process, that Ysolda knows what she's doing, that she wouldn't make us all knit Frankenstein's monster shawls, that she's not sitting there, in a castle in Scotland, rubbing her hands together and laughing evilly. Although perhaps she is...
Deep breaths. The only way to find out whether these will look goods in the end is too keep knitting. And if they don't I can always gift them to someone I don't like very much, right?
