Since my last post which was about knitting forever and non-stop on my fair shawl, I again knitted forever and non-stop through 25 more rounds of 576 stitches, then moved on to the edging which was 7 more rounds, during which I increased to 896 stitches and had this on my 40″ around needle:
Apparently I didn’t need those extra days I found last week. What seemed like miles and miles and miles and hours and hours and weeks of knitting just melted away this past weekend as I knit and knit and knit and knit. And then, for the past seemingly eleventy thousand hours, I bound off and finished JUST NOW:
I love, Love, LOVE it. I’m so proud of it.
And now I have to block it (soak it, stretch it and pin it), during which I’m probably not going to love it or be proud of it. Need I mention again the 320 pins that apparently need to be put into it? Which I have to buy first. And have a chunk of time to do it, which I won’t for the next week. It is currently 37 inches across and it will likely stretch to 60 inches or more. But when that is finally done, I will be back to loving it and being proud of it because it is going to look even more awesome than it looks right now. Which I think is pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.
