Three weeks!  I started this three weeks ago.  That’s way slow for me.  I told one friend yesterday I just needed two more hours to finish it, and today I took that time.  Taxes were over.  I could finally do what I wanted to do. What a relief!

One skein of Plymouth Dye4Me merino/silk/cashmere, down to the last 4g.  This was one of these times when I was glad I had a second skein in reserve, just in case, and when I was glad I had a  scale that measures in grams so I could safely judge whether I had enough yarn left to do one more pattern repeat or not.  Made it by the skein of my teeth.

It is sprawled out in the other room, off the needles, taken a break from being all wound up.

3 weeks to do that? No, 3 weeks to do that and wrangle the taxes. I’m sure both were beautifully done, but I only really want to see photos of the shawl. 🙂

Congrats!! Do we get to see this one now… or later?

can’t wait to see it all spread out and blocked — and I agree — there’s a lot of really useful things you can do with a scale that measures in grams!

Three weeks? Have I told you that I’ve been reading the same book since July? THAT is slow. Three weeks is like lightning!
