|Yes, that is an unwoven end. It's not blocked yet so I don't have to!|
Sometime in March I left the following note on my Hera's project page in Ravelry:
This has been languishing because I am apparently crap at figures. Argh.Hah! It's true. Do you remember when your math teachers used to assure you in that oh-so-superior tone that you'd better learn this while you can because you're going to need it later in life? Well, it goes double for knitters. That's twice as much.
But I also remembered another little quote from the costume design teacher at Colorado State University:
If they can't see it on a galloping horse from 20 yards away, stop worrying about it.Again, I say Hah! Knitting is also an exercise in making decisions about whether to fix the problem and move on or scrap everything and start over. The more knitting I do, the more inclined I am to do the former unless something is Completely Dire - 3 extra stitches, it turns out, definitely does not fit into that category, so I increased here and decreased there and voila! Numbers that match.
This shawl is big. Not huge - that descriptor is reserved for the great 6-foot square Shetland productions a la Sharon Miller and our Dearly Departed Knitters of Yore. But nevertheless, it is big. These fence posts are 4" wide:

To celebrate, I wound up some yarn I got at the CommuKnity closing sale back in February of 2009:
