I've finally reached the edging of the Cap Shawl. I'm now about 10% done with the edging.
Keep in mind there are 738 stitches on the last round of the shawl and edging has to be attached to each stitch and there is a row of edging between each attached stitch row. I could look at it and say, "Wow, I'm over 80% of the way done with the shawl." Yes, I am the type of person that sees the glass as half empty, why do you ask?
Someone asked me last night at the Sit 'n' Knit exactly how many shawls had I done and I was trying to count up in my head and my fingers. I ended up estimating 15. The Cap Shawl will, in fact, be my fifteenth shawl (counting shawlettes). And yes, I wear them all (except for the four I've given to family). And yes, I will be making more.
I've also been doing a bit of spinning.
I really wish I could capture this yarn properly. It is predominately purples, with black and hints of bright red/pink and it will be a 2-ply laceweight when I'm done and will probably make a lovely shawl of some sort. I just have to see how much I'll have when done. I have maybe a third of the first bobbin done though. But I've been trying to spin for a few minutes every day while there's good light.
