No Matter How You Look At It

My original concern that the row gauge was off and it was getting too long...who the heck knows... I'm headed for the full 12 repeats and back to being a little bit nervous about getting it done before the Red Lantern.  Will someone please stop me from taking on too big a challenge next year?!?

These pictures are a bit confusing.  The part I'm working on now is actually going to curve around the bottom of the shawl.  I just have it laid out here like this to make sure (in my math challenged brain) that the shawl is going to be a little bit bigger than the first one.  There are also variables like the gray shawl has been blocked and the white one not...just to further confuse things.  

Try not to think about it too much.  I'll go back to posting sheep and Hank pictures tomorrow ;-D.


  1. I'm wondering if I will have enough yarn. Whatever possessed me to knit a baby blanket in fingering weight yarn? The same think that possessed you to opt for the gauge-challenging shawl.

  2. It's funny, when I glanced at the first picture I thought it had a piece of blue ribbon on it and I thought, oh I like the cream with the blue ribbon. How's that for a run on sentence! Anyway, you've been hard at work and I still can't find the pattern to the top I already started. I've managed to trash the guest room by piling all kinds of stuff from various closets on the bed. I have to keep the door shut too since Molly cat thinks it's great fun to jump in the pile. Ugh!

    I do have a question for you: what do you use to block something large?

    1. I use two sheets of some sort of hard foam insulation for houses taped together with duct tape :-D. Here is a post with some pictures:

    2. Thank you!

  3. Looks like 20 has the situation under control. Knit on with Confidence & Mush on to Nome! (See you there)

  4. So good to know 20 has your back! Can't wait to see it done!


I love to read your comments! Thank you for sharing :-).
