It’s only been a week since I added Queen Aubrey’s Shawl to WIP, and it has grown a lot (like the real Aubrey)! Here is a picture at 100/160 rounds. This is about 100cm/40″ in diameter. I have finished 130/160 rounds now, but haven’t had a chance to take an updated photo.
Someone asked me how many stitches there were on the needle, and how long it takes to complete a round. The answers: whilst I haven’t actually counted them, there are 32 repeats of 20 stitches = 640 stitches in total! Wow; that’s a lot of stitches. I’m really not looking forward to the bind off, but at least that will mean another Finished project. As to how long it takes to knit a round: about 15-30 minutes, depending on whether it is knit-only round (not many of these). I am now finding left leaning decreases and double decreases in the pattern, but still no purling.
Well I must keep knitting, as this needs to be finished and blocked by 6th March. My needles will be smoking! 😀
