I'm plugging away doggedly at my shawl in 85+ degree weather. Lots of staying indoors in the dark watching movies. I'm just past 25% done. I think I'm having more fun figuring out where I am than actually knitting it. (As I stated in my blog, I conveniently forgot before starting that I need handy pattern-change points to stay motivated, and the increasing width isn't exactly helping!.) It's been long and it'll just... get... longer... but I keep going. It's hard to gauge the final size. I started thinking my yarn supply was actually quite excessive, but given my little lump of yarn I hope I make it 19 more rows to make sure I'll have 1/3 per ball.
Just finished the third repeat of Chart 1, plus the first row of repeat 4. 251 stitches across now.
I do think I should start another project, though, to stop feeling like this is the project that will never end. Anyone else in that boat?
I'll stop whining now.
P.S. I'm not actually sucking at the lace, though :)
