WIP Wednesday - Nae Shawl

A few months ago I stumbled across the Nae shawl on Ravelry, and last week I finally cast it on.  I've never done a shawl before, so I am a little anxious that after all the thousands of hours it will require, I end up with something decent that I will be proud to wear.

I love the clean lines of the shawl, and the pattern seems simple enough, even though some of the stitches (knitting through back loop, purling through back loop), were new to me.  It's a free download too!

I absolutely adore Lavidaloca's Nae, so I found the same yarn online and bought it in the same colour.  Isn't hers gorgeous?

Wish me luck - any shawl knitting tips appreciated!

(By the way, the last photo is an homage to Amanda at Hey Porkchop, who takes the most beautiful pictures of her knitting on quilts!)

Will be linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced... in a bit!
