Guess what??!! Halcyon is blocking! it’s true, it’s true – the sweater is almost done – only seaming and the neck edge to go!
So I have been thinking about this Pi Shawl. It occurs to me that the knitter lady might not have heard of a Pi Shawl. That unless her pattern specifically stated Pi Shawl, she would think she was simply knitting a circular shawl. Furthermore, when she runs into me at the Dr’s office and I ask her about Pi, she might not have thought I was a knitter, but instead thought I was a mathematician! who knows ….. but the end of the story is that no matter how I contorted myself, she never noticed my socks.
Also the other end of the story is that seeing this Pi Shawl in person has confirmed what I always suspected — those things are weird looking. I just don’t understand the point of it — you go to the trouble of knitting a gigantic circle but to wear it you have to double it over. Why not just knit a triangular shawl?
Furthermore, I think it only looks good on Pre-raphealite models posing in field of larkspur. On post-raphealite ladies wearing velour tracksuits in dr’s offices – not so good.
and babies, I am only a tracksuit away……
