Who'd have thought increasing two stitches on most rows and four on the rest would make a shawl so wide, so fast?
I didn't break out the measuring tape, but even before I blocked it, its wingspan was greater than mine, and now that it's blocked...
Well. I didn't expect that it would end up that big. I especially didn't think I could knit something that big in less than a week!
For contrast, next to it is the first tiny swatch for my next project, a lovely pair of gloves. That's fingering weight wool-cashmere on size 00 needles (or was it 000? Damn. I know what color they were, I can find out!) The goal is 30 stitches to four inches--will I get it in one try? Will I have to endure the pain of multiple swatches for a single project? Stay tuned!
