Just a little something

 The Stephen West shawl (why can't I remember its name? Botanical?) is progressing. 

But honestly, this one is going to take forever. I currently have 13 'ribs' done. There are a ton of stitches on the needle. It takes 18 ribs. There are 12 stitches per rib. There's one stitch increase per two rows.  So let's do some math! 5 x 12 x 2 = about 120 more rows (probably a few less). Yikes. I can do maybe two rows in an hour at this length. I can't even do the math on when I will finish!!!!

It is a stormy stormy day here, although it is supposed to go to showers this afternoon. Which is good, as our friend and architect Roger and his gf are coming to see the house--Roger designed it and has never seen it so we are very excited to show it to him.

So cool that your architect is coming over! I still want to knit that Botanic shawl, but I think I'm happy that I have yet to buy the pattern and/or the yarn - lol.

It’s a pretty shawl. Enjoy the process no matter how long it takes.

Sometimes, it's best not to do the math.

Oh he will be so thrilled with your home! And I love the shawl...but that's a lot of knit time!

What a beautiful shawl! I'm sure it will be worth every stitch when you're finished knitting -- and wrapping up in it this winter. XO
