A terrible photo, but it’s not about the photo

I haven’t done a knitting update in a while because a. I haven’t been knitting that much and b. This pattern hasn’t been that exciting to knit so far. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a really nice knit but it’s also a bit of a TV knit. What it has done, though, is grow very quickly. Here is a terrible photo (the kind of photo that I make fun of when I am looking for patterns on Ravelry) to demonstrate how big this is so far.

That notebook is an A4. It’s a properly big notebook. Taller and slightly narrower than letter-size. It is the best size, but that’s not the point. I still have to knit the lace section on this shawl which is going to be another 96 rows, plus the binding off. This is the part of the project that makes me nervous because there is always the possibility of a game of yarn-chicken in the future.
