9 stitches were cast on to begin this shawl.
3 years later, it is only halfway complete. It takes me about a half an hour just to knit one round, since there are now 576 stitches on the needle.
The current band I am knitting is a sea of stockinette stitch. In other words, it is dreadfully boring. On the plus side, it was easy to pick back up after not knitting on it for over a year.
Maybe I’ll finish it before she gets married. (hysterical laughter)
