The Magic Number

Nuvem Yarn on Scale
Guess what?  I'm officially done knitting the body of Nuvem!  Man, oh man, does it ever feel good to be so close to the finishing line!!  I thought this day would never come.  But here I am, ready to start the ruffle edging.  I'm seven rows away from finishing this bad boy of a shawl.

Seems easy peasy enough, right?  That's what I thought...until I remembered that I now need to increase a stitches like there's no tomorrow.  I know that I have well over a thousand stitches (I stopped counting after nine hundred and saw that I still had about three quarters of a needle's worth of stitches to go), meaning that I have to increase at least a thousand stitches too.  

I have a feeling these last seven rows are going to take me all weekend to knit up.  I don't even want to think about how long the bind off will take.  Tonight I'll definitely be hunkering down with Nuvem.  

And maybe a bottle of beer.

Or two.

  1. Ha ha good luck! I hate getting so close to the end then realising this is going to be the most time consuming part. Your a super fast knitter though so no doubt it is all finished now.

    1. Hahaha...thanks Kat! :) Why do designers always make the most time consuming part be at the very end?
