Camp Loopy Project One – Done!

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. 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!

3S Shawl

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.

    I really like the 3S shawl and joined Ravelry because of it. I am a little confused though, is it done on a circular needle or straight needles? Your chicken stories are very entertaining!

    That will be awesome with a white top and jeans- like a nice hug you can give yourself.

    It’s beautiful Judy. I love the colors, the way they blend. You really did cut it close, but it will be great this winter.

    I LOVE it, but hope it’ll be a long while before you have to wear it! I’m not ready for winter yet….although tomorrow is supposed to be close to 90 and very humid.
