I did finish my Shetland Pi yesterday, and I blocked it. I won’t be posting pictures for a while — but I will post some after the last part goes live next Sunday.
My pi took just about 1400 yards of fingering weight yarn. Unblocked it measured 50″ across and after blocking it grew to a whopping 72″ across. I actually could have blocked it out a little bigger if I had the floor space. As it was, I had to move some furniture to block it to 72″.
So I spent some time knitting on my Wispy Cardi. Here is half of the “shrug” portion of it.
Well, try to picture what it looks like. You may recall that I have reported about Lucy’s love for this yarn. Clearly, she is still enamored.
Rather than do the whole thing in one piece as the pattern directs, I left the first half on a needle and cast on again for the second half. I’ll join them using a three-needle bind-off. One of my issues with designs that are knit sideways is that one cuff edge is cast-on and the other one is bound-off, and they will look a little different. And of course on one side the knitting goes up and the other side it goes down.
“That green thing is for me, right?”
