I picked up the Oaklet Shawl that I started last September and discovered I had done 55 rows. Last night I took a very quick picture to send to a friend:
That was at about 73 rows and I am now to 80! Slow, but steady. I've been able to do a few rows at lunch each day this week which has been nice (and relaxing). The knit rows go fast for me, but man am I slow when I purl. And, of course, every other row the stitch count increases by 4 (now at 169 stitches). There are 113 rows before the lace border. Slow, but steady...
And, so far (day 3) I have resisted casting on anything new. I'm really enjoying the flow of colors in this shawl and it is mindless, almost meditative knitting. That's a good thing! Once I get to the lace rows, I will not be able to knit this while at work...too many interruptions and distractions. Guess I'll have to cast on some socks at that point!!
