FO: Narnia Shawl

After showing a sneak peak of my new shawl in my last post, here is the finished shawl!

This was my first experience using worsted weight yarn to knit a shawl. I must say that I really like the result. Too bad that I don’t have enough yarn to make it bigger. I learned a few new stitches that I never did before, such as p tbl and p2tog tbl. These stitches are quite handful to do, esspecially for tight knitter like me. Luckily I used Addi lace needle with its pointed tip. Eventhough I used Addi Lace, in order to make p2tog tbl, I still needed to use the 2 steps method. The one that have to move the stitches to the right needle first and twisting it back to the left needle before p2tog.
