These were all things I said to myself about the Panda Silk DK Fan shawl.
Well, let's just say I did finish it, and the it in question is a doo rag, and was supposed to be a doo rag. A very fancy, time consuming doo rag.
Now I'm working on the Emily Shawl from Knitscene blah, blah, just bought yesterday. I hope it too doesn't turn out tiny. For the record, I have heard of a gauge swatch. Heard of.
