I promised you a picture of Ene so here she is. I am up to chart 2 right now, and since I am determined to finish this shawl within 6 weeks, I am aiming to work about 5 or 6 rows a day. At the moment it's tough as I have still got over 300 stitches per row. Owie!!
I have found that placing stitchmarkers help. I only use 3 stitch markers - 1 at the left border, one at the right border and one to mark the center stitch. If I use markers aywhere between, the markers move, and that's not much help to me. After making the first Ene, I found that once I can read my own knitting it all becomes easy. I hardly even need the charts after that.
Here's another picture of Ene. It's a little clearer. I think I made a little booboo at the lower corner, btu I am hoping once again that it will nto be too noticeable. At least the diamonds don't look mis-shapened or anything.
