Comments: Having knit both Kiri and Rowan's Birch, I prefer Kiri. The edging pattern and the center increases give the shawl a more structured, finished look. I also find starting with three stitches and increasing to the desired size is a much more convenient way to knit shawls.
Just in case you haven't already heard, Irene over at Designer Knits is having a battle with one of her co-workers. He writes a football blog and has been giving her a hard time for being a knit blogger. They have come up with a challenge. In Irene's words: "The official blog wars bet has been finalized. If football blogger remains ahead of me in terms of readers by the end of the year, I have to knit him something. If I overtake him, he has to learn to knit, and make something of his own." So, go over and add her to your bloglines! Let's show that football fool what a great community we have. You won't regret it, Irene's blog is funny and loaded with wonderful photos.
