row counters and blocking wires should be available at any good yarn store or craft store. I have a little one that slips on the end of my needle but you have to remember to turn the number to keep track of the rows, i think a hand held clicker one that you just click at the end of each row are the better ones. will keep an eye on your shawl progress - glad you joined the ravelympics :)


Do you have a guestimate as to how much yardage you'll have? Then you can start looking for patterns. :o) Here's a list of triangular shawl patterns by yardage: http://simpleknits.blogspot.com/2007/08/296-triangle-shawl-patterns.html


I saw somewhere on Rav, that someone (can't get much more vague than that , huh? ;) used aluminum welding rods. I believe you can get them 3' long and you may have to buy more than you need, but they're CHEAP. At least much cheaper than blocking wire kits. Good luck with the shawl I can't wait to see the progress.
