Frigging Daylight Saving Time, that’s what.
I resent the fact that I am losing an hour out of this weekend. If we have to set the stupid clocks forward, why can’t we do it at, say, Monday at 1pm?
Of course, the KOARC pointed out to me that if we lost an hour on a Monday afternoon in March, we’d have to gain an hour on a Monday afternoon in the autumn. So I guess that wouldn’t work.
Even given the loss of one precious golden hour, I finished knitting my Agatha Shawl. Here it is unblocked.
I used Dream in Color Classy worsted weight in the “Blue Lagoon” colorway, purchased from The Loopy Ewe and knit my shawl with a 4.5mm needle. The pattern came from “That Logan Chick” and I purchased my copy here.
I used almost all of 4 skeins of yarn, so close to 1000 yards.
I soaked the completed shawl in warm water with some Soak wool wash, then spun it in my washer to get all the excess moisture out. Here it is blocking:
I made mine quite a bit larger than the pattern directs, and I probably spread it out a little more in the blocking. The onlyplaces I pinned, though, are the points of the edging, so it’s really not stretched at all. The wingspan is close to 80 inches.
As I said while knitting this, it’s a lovely well-written pattern and was great fun to knit.
Here is what Lucy thinks of the time change:
