I’ve wanted to work up this design for over a decade… finally realized that it won’t knit itself.
It’s well planned… by the time I was bored with the solid section, I began the stripes. As that began to be tedious, I started the short rows. They were apparently so engaging that I knit extra repeats.
The shawl is huge and squishy and I love it. One day I’ll measure it.

Using Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off. Running errands (as passenger) so hopefully it’ll go quickly.

Apparently I’ll do 8.5 repeats of the short rows, almost did a full 9 but I want this finished already. That’s what I get for not paying attention and going on autopilot, discovered when I was at 7.5 repeats. Thankfully I have enough of c2.

Each short row is getting longer. I’m over 3/4 complete with this section. I’m very happy with my final color choices. I can’t wait to finish it.
