Hi, I live in rural Tasmania Australia and have knitted for years. After many Arans, fair-isles and baby garments, (to say nothing of dozens of pairs of socks) I still have one unfulfilled objective... a wedding ring shawl. Found a pattern in the local trash and treasure shop, looked on the university of Google, visited the wool shop in the nearest regional city and I'm about to begin... just got to finish Heather's socks.
It's a daunting task but I hope that as I'm a fairly confident and competent knitter it will happen, mind you I'm planning a triangular shawl first as a trial. I'm sure I will be looking for tips along the way.
