Today I’m writing to celebrate the gold medal that Sue, aka soxchik won because it’s dear to me too – she knit a shawl from my Chrysler Crown Shawl pattern.
Sue told me that she was working to the deadline of wearing it to Stitches West – and she was successful! Congratulations to you!
For those on Ravelry who want to have a look, Sue’s project is the Team Sasquatch Chrysler Crown Shawl.
My Olympic knitting is also complete. I completed Ishbel. My early guesses about whether or not I had the yardage were accurate – it was close, but on the side that worked out well for me. I had about 16 yards left.
This has me thinking about working on something that will make these guesses a little easier to make – a kind of generic tool where you can put in some data & figure out whether you’ve got enough wool, or how big to make your project. I have seen a couple of spreadsheets that do this kind of thing, but I’m thinking of something simpler and more generic. More on that soon, I think.
