Ohh, I really want to knit this stole, it is so beautiful! But I'll have to figure out if my handspun silk/merino blend is enough or if I need to spin something new to knit it with. I've got 915 m (1000 yards) of it, it weighs 67 g (2,4 oz) and is approx 30-40wpi.. well.. I guess that should be enough..

Will swap for a DIY handmade paper kit!

Hi there  Smiley

I started knitting this shawl about a week ago.  I'm halfway through now the centre panel (I'm knitting the it in one piece) but I'm worried it's going to be a bit short.  So far it's only 22 inches (56cm) long, unstretched.  I'm using HipKnits laceweight cashmere and 3mm needles.  I just wondered how big other people's were before blocking.  I've never done lace this fine before, so does it really stretch?

Hope someone can help!

It does stretch, maybe you should try blocking it on the needles/without casting off? Also if you have a scale, find out how much weight each repeat takes, and do the same with the border/edging pattern, don't forget the circular 2 or however many rows, and then you will be able to use the whole lot knowing how many repeats you have wool for?

I don't know if this is any help but I've only done four repeats on my print and its about 4 inches long, not stretched AT ALL... So you say you've done 17....Mine at that time will most likely only by 17 inches long, and your's is 22 in,....Blocking will stretch it ALOT. I dont know about yours but mine is extremely scrunched up.

Thanks, both your replies were helpful.   Smiley I decided not to block it and just carry on and see what happens (I'm quite lazy).  I'm on my 33rd repeat now (only one more to go - yay!) and I'm actually ok with the length.  It's 48 inches long.  And it is very stretchy.  But I now have another question.  I'm a little apprehensive about picking up all the stitches along the edge to do the border.  Does anyone else have any tips about this?  And also, I read that there's an errata to the pattern.  I followed the link, but it didn't seem to make sense to me.  Did anyone else change the pattern, or just follow it as it's written?
