My good friend Kate challenged me to knit along with her on this little shawl. It's Alberta by Anne-Lise Maigaard. And it is exquisite. A little tricky, but not bad. Kate's doing the large size, but I'm cheating, and only doing the smaller size. Still, Kate has mostly been keeping ahead of me. We keep telling each other it's not a race, but who're we fooling?

We're in the home stretch now, and once we're finished, and both Albertas are blocked, we're going to wear them and meet at our favourite mid-way-between-her-house-and-my-house wool shop. They won't know what hit 'em.


  1. It is really looking good.

  2. Are they both the same shade? And can I ask, do you live a long way apart or closer? What fun to do a " Knit-a-long".

  3. both of your shawls are lovely. i'm suggesting this one to my sister.
