White for Feb/March

What better way to kick of Project Spectrum than by pulling out my sisters shawl?
This photo is after 11 repeats, but I am on working on 12 now. At 14 I will be halfway through the center panel. Then comes picking up a million stitches... but we won't discuss that.

Just beautiful! You do amazing work.

BTW, picking up a million stitches would send me to bed with an attack of the vapors. Someone told me once, when confronted with such a task, that hard liquor helps :)

The stole looks gorgeous, and I can't wait to see it blocked!

I'm planning to start the PotW in Zephyr (Ruby) as soon as I can decide on gauge. I've never worked with such fine yarn, and have been swatching with different needle sizes. As I'm a tight knitter, I think I'm going to go with a 3mm. Just wondering what size you chose for the Zephyr?

Hi Elly,
I am knitting the PotW on 3.5mm Addis. I am also a tight knitter, and so I considered using 3.75 mms, but after blocking my swatches I liked the look of the smaller gauge swatch better.
