About an hour ago I completed row 299 on the Near Solstice Shawl, which means that I'm officially 3/4 through the knitting! We're down to 301 stitches per row, friends, which means the end is in sight...and could come faster than I had hoped.
Ahem - this could also be why I distracted you from the lack of posts with a book list. This shawl is eating up ALL of my spare time right now - and I'm happy to let it do so. Hopefully my next project will provide me with more to talk about!
As of bedtime I've worked through row 313, thus successfully completing my crazy challenge to finish page 4 - and 32 rows, I think - of the pattern today. (Page 4 literally took 2 weeks.) Woo Hoo! I can see the end in sight!
