NEW YARDAGE ESTIMATE : 1950 to 2000 yards.
My shawl took 1941 yards. Some knitters are within the original yardage estimate. Kim generously and wisely increased the size of the skeins in March, with no bump up in price.
All but the earliest kits sold have 2100 yards and should not pose a problem. If you ordered your kit during the first few weeks of release, you may wish to weigh your skein to determine it's size.
I RECOMMEND SHORTENING SHAWL HALVES BEFORE BEGINNING CENTER DIAMOND BY 20 ROWS (2 DAINTY CHEVRON PATTERN REPEATS) IF NECESSARY.
You will have to fudge the beaded edging. as you will be a few rows off on the end of that pattern, but I don’t think it will be noticeable by anyone but you. Shawl will still block out to 83 inches long.
To those who have sent me messages, thank you for your support at this difficult time. It means the world to me.
To quote Blanche DuBois, “I have always depended upon the kindness of strangers.”
Tonight, you proved yourselves to be anything but.
It is I who am blessed for your presence in my life.
