Including today, I have 16 days to finish the Summer Lake Shawl if I plan to wear it to the summer lake.
The length is currently 45 inches. My ideal length is at least 68 inches.* That's a difference of 23 inches.
I've been averaging an inch and a half a day. So in 16 days I could knit 24 inches. So it looks like there will be a shawl!
Last night I wrapped the shawl around my shoulders to get a sense of how it feels and drapes. It's incredible! The drape is light and slinky and feels just so very good.
I wish I could knit 24 inches in one day because I can't wait to wear it!
*An unknown factor for me is the blocking. Will the Sea Silk grow an extra 20%? I like the holes the size they are--I don't need them to open up more. So I'm thinking that this fiber shouldn't be aggressively pulled and tugged. A gentle blocking is all it needs. If anybody has pointers on blocking Sea Silk, please feel free to share.
