That’s how many of these tiny picot scallops there now exist on the edge of this shawl.
Towards the end there I timed how long it took me to finish 40 of them. It was about twenty minutes. Which means this cast-off took me approximately 4 hours, not accounting for bathroom, food, water, or itching my foot breaks.
This is how close I was to done when I suddenly and rather unexpectedly finished a ball of yarn. I had a third ball of that yarn (thank the yarn gods), but I was annoyed that I had to start a new ball that close to the end. Also, we won’t discuss how I almost didn’t buy that third skein of yarn.
I also don’t want to talk about how I’m going to block this shawl and pin out 478 picot scallops on a ruffle edged crescent shaped shawl. I’ll take proper pictures once I figure out how to block it.
On the brightside, I finished all of the cooking yesterday (except for the turkey I’m making just for us, which I’ll cook on Friday I think), so today I get to hang out with my hubby who is off for the rest of the week.
The blog will probably be dark for the rest of the week, while I’m off celebrating the holiday. So, Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours. I hope you have the merriest and grateful-est of holidays. I’m sending my love.
