About The Numbers

Well I washed all the color from the shawl with the lighting

I am running late today. My morning and early afternoon were cluttered with things to do. Then once I was home I wanted to finish the 5th section of the shawl before I shared it with you. Then I did a few more rows just because I was in the mood.

So I’ve started the 6th section of nine with a few more final rows beyond. This section started with the 86th row. I’m about to do the 89th. The full shawl is 186 rows so I’m not quite at the half way point in the rows. I am beyond the half way point in the number of stitches per row.

It’s funny how the numbers can be juggled around to convince ourselves of progress. Sure it looks bigger. As long as rows are knit, and not tinked back, progress is being made. But it sounds so much better to have more than half the increases done. More than half the number of stitches that will mark the last row.

I imagine I’ll count each of these half way points and the 3/4 points as I make my way to the final bind off row. Anything to feel the forward motion.
