I did finally finish the Time Vortex Lace section of my Bigger on the inside shawl, and on Friday night I picked up the 311 stitches required along the bottom curved edge to work the TARDIS section.
I looked at the project notes for this design on Ravelry, and found that another knitter described picking up the stitches by dividing the edge into 8 equal sections, and then picking up 38, 39, 39, 39, 1 stitch in the middle, 39, 39, 39, 38. This seemed as good a plan as any, so while half watching Ghostbusters II on television Friday night, that’s how I picked up my stitches.
Here’s the current state of the shawl after a Saturday’s-worth of knitting:
I have completed Row 28 of the TARDIS chart and this is how much yarn I have left of my first skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock:
That looks like it’ll last for one more row. So I’ll definitely make a big dent in a second skein.

Just for fun, I’ve started a cartoon series called “Wendy & Lucy.”
No, I have no plans to quit my day job.
