I knit a fair bit on Onerva this weekend. It is coming along nicely.
When I first started buying really good needles, I thought that if I bought one long needle, I would have something that would work no matter what I was working on. Bahahahaha. We all know how that goes.
The 60 inch needle tells me that this shawl is not quite so wide as I had hoped. I am not a tall person so that wingspan is not so wide as some. It is finger tip to finger tip before blocking and I know that it will grow a lot on blocking BUT...
The plan was that at the end of the first skein, I would start a second and start decreasing. I do have a third so I have the option to use part of that too, but then I may end up with a shawl that is too large to wear. This is just as bad and awkward as too small.
I have to decide on how wide I want it to be very shortly.
No matter what I do, this skein is quickly coming to an end.
Got to go. I hear the pitter patter of little feet and that means Marcus thinks morning has arrived. I guess it has!
