It was packed, with almost twenty people there! My problem with knitting clubs is that I usually spend too much time clubbing and not enough time knitting, especially if I haven't seen some of the people in a while. I also forgot the golden rule of knitting-club knitting, which is bring something simple. Lace is no good. A garter stitch project is just about right.
Unfortunately, the project I grabbed was my mystery knit-a-long shawl. I think I am happy with the solution I worked out, with much agonizing. I decided to mimic the garter stitch rows in the previous clue, right at the turn of the second "elbow," before switching back to Color 1 for the rest of the border. Hopefully it is close enough to the other two-stripe motifs in the rest of the shawl that it looks like it belongs there.
So even though I have a solution (I think) to the problem of running out of yarn on my shawl, it was impossible to work on it with the level of concentration it demands. Tomorrow I have off from work, and even though I have a ton of errands, I am hopeful that I can hole up for a few hours in relative peace and quiet to finish the darn thing. I need to get at least one of my Ravellenic projects done, for a tiny sense of accomplishment.
