The shawl is now a black blob
The Widow's Shawl has gotten the majority of my knit time this week. Here it is about 3/4 of the way into panel two of six. Each panel is one more row of the lace faggot stitch (and isn't it WEIRD that it's only in knitting and needlework that the term "faggot" is not a perjoritive). The stocking stitch panels between the lace areas also grow larger by four up to ten rounds.
And at the same time, you are adding 8 stitches along the diagonal corners on every other round. So you can see, this didn't stay 'coster' sized for very long.
