Adding the extra repeat to make this shawl a little longer was a good idea: it’s beginning to look like I might run out of shawl at around the same time as I run out of yarn. I was worried that I would have a hard-to-use-up amount of yarn left at the end of this. Of course, now that I’ve said that, the yarn gods will no doubt come down and bite my ass for my hubris, and I’ll run out of yarn halfway through the bindoff.
Underneath it is my blue Ishbel shawl, finished for months now but still not blocked. I keep remembering it too late in the day to risk pinning a wet shawl out on the mattress I need to sleep on, and I keep putting it in different places in the room in hopes that one of these mornings I’ll notice it early enough to get it in the bath and finally block the poor rumpled thing. I did go out and buy T-pins, so that’s one step closer already.
