I'm about to begin chart two. I have enjoyed every stitch, because the pattern is stunning and the yarn was dyed especially for me.
I have exactly 800 meters, and I do think some will remain, but I want to use every last inch, if possible. My proposal is this: putting chart one aside, and using a provisional cast on, complete the remaining three charts, and then grafting the two together. That way, if (and that's a big if) I have more yarn, I can add extra repeats of chart one. Has anyone attempted to graft more than stockingette? I think it should be possible. However, it may break up the vertical line of the shawl, so I'm quite hesitant about this.
That said, I will use my new digital scale to determine the weight of my remaining yarn and calculate all the stitch requirements before I make my decision.
This knit-a-long is a fabulous resource! I had no idea such a thing existed. Thanks to all for participating.
