I am currently knitting my Flamenco Shawl. I've finished the pattern, and started the ruffle. Friends with more experience suggested that ruffles are really-really-really boring. But I persisted
Turns out, they're right.
So here's a (stolen) picture of the Flamenco Shawl that is finished.
See that ruffle? Isn't it darling? Isn't it gorgeous? Perfect?
damn thing is about 1,300 stitches long at this point. For a point of reference, that's equal to about 20 rows on a sock--or about 5 inches. So, the same number of stitches that would be 5 inches on a sock is about 1/3 to 1/4 of an inch in this damned ruffle.
I accept that I took this on myself. I should have listened to my wiser friends (of course, they mainly became wiser through making the same exact mistakes I did) I did not, I chose this fate for myself.
....I might need a nice white jacket. Something with long sleeves, I'm thinking.
