How a Shawl Became a Blanket

Who needs gauge? Not this girl. That’s the short story about how this shawl became a blanket. Or would be if I had enough yarn to finish it.

The long story involves the purchase of 5 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft while on vacation, the realization those 5 skeins would never make it, the procurement of 2 additional skeins that surely would, and the one last skein that is still needed when they didn’t. I ran out with 18 edge chart repeats to go. It wasn’t even close.

If you’re going to play it fast and loose you gotta suffer the repercussions.

I was probably never going to wear this in public, anyways, she said petulantly. If I ever finish the dang thing.
