Notes

April 28, 2016

I love this yarn! The colours are fantastic, just what I was hoping for, and it is so nice to work with.

I couldn’t put it down this evening and worked up to row 35 :)

April 30, 2016

I got to the halfway point, row 83, and weighed my yarn. I’ve only used 40%. I got the spreadsheet out and started playing with numbers. I’m going to do 89 rows for the body and an extra repeat of the eyelet section. This should give me a couple of grams left over. I’ll weigh again as I work through the eyelet section.

54g left at end of row 89

I did an extra set of eyelets. I was sweating a bit during the cast off, but I played yarn chicken and won! I’ll block it tomorrow.

I’ve pinned out my shawl and remembered why I started to avoid crescent-shaped shawls! I find it really difficult to get both sides exactly the same, and I hate the hump in the middle at the top :(

Final measurements are 60” x 15”
