Here is the state of my Wingspan Scarf as of this morning, spread out as much as possible on my desk at work:
I am on the 16th triangle and am thinking about how many more triangles I can make. I have this much of the skein left:
Before I started the 16th triangle, I weighed the skein. It weighs 29 grams. This yarn comes in a 150-gram skein, so the first 15 triangles took 121 grams of yarn, or just over 8 grams each.
After completing the triangles, I need to work 4 rows along the long edge and then bind off. That long edge will be over 200 stitches, because each triangle contributes 13 stitches to the edge.
A variable — I did not weigh my skein before I started knitting. It may have weighed slightly more or less than 150 grams.
So what I think I will do is work a total of 17 triangles then work the long edge.
I did purchase a second skein of Zauberball Starke 6 in this colorway, but I think I’ll be very happy with the length of the scarf worked with one skein.
Would anyone like my second skein to knit their own Wingspan?

My momma forgot to post my picture in Tuesday’s blog entry! She has been really busy at work and it’s made her forgetful. Or maybe her problem is old age.
