Just to refresh your memories ~ I started with this ~
Which I spun into this ~
And then began knitting this ~
I started spinning the yarn in late November~early December 2010, and finished spinning the yarn the first part of February 2011. I had approximately 1800 yards of the 2ply with white yarn and about 700 yards of the 3ply solid yarn.
I then knit the shawl from February to May 2011. I wish I had kept track of the hours it took to make this. It is a variety of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Pi Shawl and ended up between 80-90″ around. I just kept knitting until I used up the yarn, and I cut it pretty close. I only had about 1 foot left of the yarn, I was binding off with, after I was done.
When I was blocking it (which was on the floor of an empty room), I found 1 dropped stitch about half way up the shawl. It got sewn in place with it’s neighbor using matching thread.
I haven’t used it yet. But occasionally, I pull it off the shelf and pet and fondle it.
I just added to my Ravelry projects ~ Rainbow Pi Shawl
