The last time I mentioned the shawl, I had just cast on using the Incredible, Custom-Fit Raglan Calculator. The plan being to knit it just like a raglan cardigan, but never divide for the arms.
At the time, I thought that I had a reasonably-sized set of #3 circular needles. It turned out that I did not. Instead, I had to start it on a pair of straight needles. I just kept cramming it on there until eventually the stitches started popping off the far end.
Then it was a matter of waiting until I had the opportunity to buy a pair of circular needles. I stuffed the project into the drawer of my coffee table, to await this magical day.
As you can see, that day came and went. The needles got tossed into the drawer alongside the project. And there the whole mess has sat, undisturbed, ever since. Jostling for space with cat vomit medicine, a hardware tape measure, a flea comb, a calculator, and who knows what else. (Oh, also, and a full set of cat feet.)
At this point, the most likely scenario is that the project’s inertia will be overcome by my own. As in, I’ll be sitting there on the couch, wanting to knit something, but not wanting to stand up and go get it. Presto!
