Still On The Needles–Jan 10

I am almost finished with the Morning Bells Shawl for my daughter.  I am on the last row - of 1,100 something stitches… and then the bind off of those 1,100 something stitches.  I have to chuckle because when I mentioned this shawl in the beginning several folks commented that the rows took forever – they were right.  At the end of the shawl section I think you have nearly 400 stitches on the needles – with the increases every other row in the bell section you end up with the 1,100 something stitches.

I had picked up an extra ball of the yarn so maybe I’ll have enough to make some simple fingerless gloves to go with the shawl… we shall see.

When I’m done with this I think I will go back to some unfinished projects like the felted clogs – I’ve been thinking more and more about these now that it’s so chilly – time to finish them and put them to use.

To see what others are knitting… hop over to Judy L’s Patchwork Times.

Beautiful! I know how you feel though, I am working on a half circle shaped shawl and I keep increasing and increasing until now every row just seems to take forever! Yours looks lovely and will be so worth it once you are done.

And I thought some of my rows were long. I would be pulling my hair out, but it will be great once it's done.

I've made Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi Shawl and there are a lot of stitches on that one too. I went to Ravelry to look at the Morning Bells shawl. Your's is going to be pretty.

Your daughter is a very lucky girl! The shawl is beautiful.

The shawl is beautiful...but 1100 stitches in a row would be a challenge! lol
