I'm still working on the stripes of my Ramble.  As I type this I realize that I didn't prewash the Aniversario (or the Natural, but of the two, if there's trouble, it won't come from the Natural).  The odds are that I won't ever have to wash the shawl, but I'm a little skittish around stripes at the moment, as I'm sure you can understand.

OK, personal stripe related trauma aside, I'm still striping and I will continue striping until there are enough stripes.  Since this pattern is written for DK weight and I'm knitting it in fingering weight, it's going to take more stripes than the pattern calls for to get to the size I need before I start the brioche.  For some reason, I feel like it should be bigger than it is.  I feel like I've done more knitting on this than I apparently have.  I don't really feel like it's a knitting black hole, but I definitely have questions.  I was sick last week, and I'm kind of wondering if I was knitting backwards.  I have no idea, but for the amount of knitting time I've put into this, I think there should be more to it when I spread it out.  Mysterious...

I hate it when I knit and knit and knit and when I go and measure it, it's only 1/2 inch longer than when I started. I think the knitting gods get their jollies from it...LOL
