It was very close. I almost got the whole shawl knit from 2 skeins of Alchemy Juniper. But I had to dip into the third skein at the very end — to the tune of less than 1 gram of yarn!
So I am estimating that this baby takes approximately 500 yards. The unblocked measurements are 44″ along the top and 23″ down the center back. Blocked measurements — well, I’ll know those after I block this. Blocking may occur this evening, or I may wait until the weekend. We’ll see. More likely this weekend as I have other things to do tonight.
It took me 6 days to knit this, which is pretty darn fast for me. Judging from the yardage I used, this is bigger than most of my shawlette patterns but took me way less time to knit. I guess I like knitting from the bottom up.
Now I need to wind this for the next project . . .
Congratulations to Kat, Cyndee, and Beth C. who have each won a knitter’s eye chart in my drawing. I have emailed you three. Thanks to everyone who left a comment and thanks to Firefly for donating the prizes.
