Yay! I finished my 3S Shawl last night. During the knitting process, I actually spent more time with the calculator than with the knitting needles. I wish First, I calculated how many rows I needed to make to get to 200 stitches on each needle. Then I timed how long it took me to make each row and then calculated how long it would take me to get the necessary number of rows done. As I added more stitches to each row, the row got longer and therefore, took longer to complete so I had to calculate all over again. Why did I care? I’m so weird!
It still needs to be blocked . . maybe tonight.
And, all the math was for naught. I only got about 180 stitches on each side before getting to the end of the yarn. This is how much I ended up with! These skeins have 430 yards so I’m guessing I used close to 400 yards.
Even after the bellyaching I did about the yarn being more variegated than I wanted, I love it! I can’t wait til
I’m skinny winter comes again and I can wear it with jeans and a white sweater or shirt.
Love the pattern! It was so easy! I can do it without having to count or pay attention to what I’m doing. Love the shawl . . it will be great for chasing away the chill on our barely chilly winter days. Cannot wait to make another one . . some day.
