Finished, full Pi

Warning:  spoiler photo after the jump.

     All clues are posted and a lot of people are already knitting the 4th clue.  This is my second shawl for 2011 and also my second design for that challenge.  I finished my prototype on 24/03.  My calculations were a bit off, I ended up using 1518.98 meters or 1715.625 yards of fingering weight yarn.  The shawl, blocked slightly (because I didn't have enough space) is 96in (243.84cm) in diameter, which is way too big, so I also released a smaller 4th clue.

     When I started this KAL, I had plans of posting every time I released a clue, wait a few days and then post pics of my progress, but in the middle of this project there was a house :D.  We closed on a house on the very day the last clue was posted, but I was busy working in the background so we could buy the house.  These things got in my way and I wasn't able to post as often as I'd planned (and wanted).

     The photo you see here is of when we first saw the house.  After the jump you'll see a photo of the finished shawl - because this is a knitting blog, after all.
     I don't have better pictures, sorry.  Like I said, I didn't have enough space to block it any larger or display it better for the shot and the weather wasn't good enough to take photos outside.

     There is a lot of knitting related work that I need to do (like fixing the chart for the edging on Dorothy and start knitting another idea), but my time has been consumed by the house.  I'll eventually find a balance, as the renovations necessary are many and time consuming.


  1. Congratulations on your new house!!! It looks like it will be a lovely home!

    The shawl is beautiful - I really have to start mine!

  2. If I knitted that Pi shawl, which some day I shall...I would be so totally proud. Good for you! Love your blog.
