We officially started on January 27th (yes this year, I haven't been working on it that long). I actually started one day early since I was confused by the pattern and was given advice on how to get started.
I ended up starting this shawl 5 times and finally changed to a less slippery yarn which helped alot.
We were supposed to finish on 2/17. However, with all of the new to me stitches and the fact that this is a shawl and not a hat, I thought four weeks was agressive. I figured it would be a good challenge and with so many other people working on the same pattern, there would be some resources available when I got stuck.
I think most people finished on time, but a few of us decided the new deadline was April 30th. Since that is still almost 2 months away, I think I might make it.
I have really enjoyed seeing other people's progress and feel like my knitting skills have grown.
I'm not thrilled with how my shawl is turning out but will finish it and wear it with pride. Mostly though, I am happy to have added a few stitches to my knitting repertoire and really enjoyed the virtual knitting circle of the #TwitKAL.
