I am not a good judge of yarn-age. I see now that I most likely would have had plenty of yarn to do one more 24-row repeat of the body of the shawl, but hindsight is always 20/20, isn't it?
I think the stole will be long enough without an extra repeat, so no harm.
All I have left to do is that small sawtooth edging. I'm not knitting this according to the pattern directions. The pattern would have had me start two halves from the ends and graft them together in the center. I am going to try to knit the short edging on sideways knitting it together with live stitches at the end. First I'm going to need to pull out a book with those directions and, most importantly, take a deep breath.
I hope it works. I don't have a Plan B.
We are covered in pollen here around the cul-de-sac. Positively coated. As I was taking the shawl outside for this photo, I dropped the ball of yarn. As you might know it bounced and rolled all the way under the car to the other side and stopped up against the inside of a wheel. Since it is still attached to the knitting, I had to crawl around to get it and then roll it back. We were both a bit fuzzy from the experience. Murphy's Law of Blog Photography.
