There is no right or wrong, only right or left.

There is endless debate on what is the "fastest" or "best" way of knitting. I maintain that there is no "right" or "wrong" way of knitting, there is only right or left.

So long as you are knitting, you are right. If you aren't knitting, perhaps you should re-assess your life.

This brings me to my latest project, the Lady Eleanor Shawl from Scarf Style. It's a brilliant, simple entrelac shawl and it is barrels of fun to knit on.

I can knit backwards, so I'm not doing much turning, but it reminds me of a post that Stephanie wrote a few years back, about her grandmother told her that knitting backwards was "wrong", and nipped that habit in the bud. When she was working on the Entrelac Socks from Socks, Socks, Socks she wished that she hadn't quit knitting backwards.

I tell Andrew, while we're watching TV (and I'm knitting away on my shawl) that I'm really enjoying it and that knitting backwards is cool. I think he called me a freak, or some such thing, which is okay, because he said it with great envy.

It definitely needs the stuffing blocked out of it, but it's going to be lovely. Pics to be posted.
