Knitting Olympics Last Leg

The Olympics have been over for awhile, but I am still slaving away over my entry, the Starburst Shawl from Iris Schreier's book Modular Knits, worked in Regal Silk 114. Even though I may be the last competitor to finish, this has been an educational project. I have successfully learned how to knit backwards - if I hadn't I don't think I'd finish this before the next Olympics! Knitting backwards makes working each enclosed diamond go much faster. The yarn colors are sumptuous, and the pattern is very easy to learn. I'll be back in a few days with the finished, blocked shawl. Levi and Coco are obviously more impressed with backyard wildlife than my knitting.
