Started the Myrtle Leaf Shawl from the Victorian Lace Today. Took a few froggings to get on track. Had big metal needles to start with and the stitches kept falling off. Got some gorgeous Knit Pick circular needles from Get Knitted and seem to be getting on a lot better know.
I've done a 4 repeats of the pattern and I'm starting to see how it works and whether I've made a mistake or not (which helps to prevent the frogging?).
The Heirloom Merino seems to suit the pattern quite well. Looking at the yarn used in book it seems to be near enough identical in size. It's really soft and I like the fact that there are plenty of colours to choose from. Not just restricted to black, grey or white.
