I am working along on my pi shawl, which, as I mentioned a couple of blog posts ago, I have dubbed “Estonian Pi” because the lace motifs are more or less based on Estonian lace patterns.
Because this is a pi shawl, it doubles in size every time you do an increase round (which is not all that often).
Over the weekend I diligently knit the entire 288-stitch-per round section, so was pretty pleased with my progress. I did a sort of razor-shell lace thingie with extra-large holes created by double yarn overs in that section.
Yesterday I did an increase round, so I now have 576 stitches on my needle. That’s a whole heckuva lot of pi!
And although I am in the second-to-last pattern chart, I still have miles to knit on this thing since it takes just short of forever to knit a round. But it is an enjoyable knit – love the yarn, love the color, love the pattern, love the needles. It’s a veritable lovefest, I tell ya!
