A day knitting on my porch, listening to "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon- Audible and I finished my TGV Shawl! I'm so pleased with it. More details on the TGV Shawl- Tuesday's Eclectic Thoughts- TGV Shawls and Other Pursuits and Friday Fantasy Knits- Dreaming of Shawlettes.
I began binding off late late night, long after I should've gone to bed, but I had been weighing my yarn up till the end trying to estimate when I should bind off and then the scale wouldn't register the little bit I had left! I kept thinking I had 15 grams and each row is 4.5 grams, I ought to have enough for three rows. But, this ball looks so small. Do I trust myself or not?
Opting to go ahead, figuring worse case scenario is I'd have to rip out. But I didn't want to waste a bit of yarn and I liked the way the colors were playing out at the end- brown, then black, then lavendar and I didn't want to give up trying. But I imagined I would get to the very end and be short several inches. I made myself finally go to bed last night.
This afternoon I worked in suspense, holding my breath.
I finished with a 15 inches to spare. Oh and it's gorgeous! I'll block it tomorrow.
