« Progress (finally) and some thoughts on charts | Main



Oh. I would ask "why didn't I think of that?" regarding scanning and flipping the chart, but the Luddite in me already knows why I didn't think of that.

And I second the thanks to Lone for dropping the reminder about the chart being off in the comments -- somewhere around here I had a note to that effect, but as you've discovered, if you set anything to do with this shawl aside somewhere safe, and then don't come back to it for six months or more, it's safe, all right, but virtually lost.


Wow! I stumbled across this blog through some convoluted route of knitting blogs....and I've spent far too much time (shhhhh - don't tell anyone - I'm at the office) reading about your experiences knitting up this amazing shawl.

On one of the posts you likened the project to a marathon -- well, I've run two of those, and I've knit a few 'marathon' projects -- so I'm going to suggest (with due respect) that this is closer to an ultra-marathon (let's say 60 miles), in the desert (perhaps, or up and down mountains, or possible both is such a thing existed)...

Hope the infrequent posts in 2007 are more a sign of pacing than abandoning the project. Can't wait for the next update!


I just found your blog (via a series of links I could never repeoduce), and I am amazed. I've been a marathon spectator many times, and a knitting spectator only rarely, so I'll be cheering you on and handing out whatever the knitters' equivalent of Clif Bars and Gatorade (chocolate anything and wine?). I'm so impressed, and can't wait to see your next posts!
