Goal Setting


Above is my Blackbird Shawl.  I want to work on it.  I don't know why, but it seems like the timeline for this shawl has been slightly screwy from the get-go.  Let me demonstrate:

Week 1:  1 inch of progress
Weeks 2-3: Another inch of progress, finished two charts and started stockinette stitch section
Weeks 4-7: Half inch of stockinette stitch knit.

This seems like the exact OPPOSITE of what's supposed to happen, since the shawl is worked from the bottom up, so there are less stitches each row.  According to my calculations, after the last row there will be zero stitches and I won't work on the project ever again - wait, that's supposed to happen.

All jokes aside, I don't think I will ever finish this shawl unless I set a goal, so here it goes:
This shawl will be finished before Rhinebeck.

That's a little over a month.  Fingers crossed!


  1. Fingers crossed for you! Of course, I have a shawl I've been knitting for 3 years so I may not be the best cheerleader.

  2. Oooo that one is in my queue. Shawls seem to take forever to finish!

  3. That's a beautiful color! The shawl is a pretty pattern, too. Good luck with your goal!
