Today I thought I finished my tenth shawl. I have been working at my Annis with flying fingers since I started it on Wednesday night during Glee, beading and purling at the speed of light in that delicious Visual Purple. I took it to my knitting group today with hopes of getting just a few rows closer to the end and with the help of a good caffeine buzz and an extra long knitting session, I even managed to bind off at my knitting group withJasmine's moral support. And my newly finished shawl is.....way too small. It's fabulous, and wonderful, and beady, and by no stretch of the imagination could it ever be anything more than a scarf. It's still lovely, but I really wish I had knitted something else for my tenth shawl, that way it would have actually been a shawl. I guess the Paige-gauge was too much- and now the shawl is too little.
Since plan A, B, and C for 10 shawls in 2010 have failed, we move on to plan D. I just need to figure out what that is first. Wish me luck.
