Just plugging away on the stole. I thought I'd check in, even though there's not much to report.
I have recently allayed a few fears I had about this project. One was that I would run out of yarn, but I got the 17 repeats of the main pattern on the first side, plus 2 repeats of the pattern on the second side completed with only 29g of yarn. I've still got 36g of a wound ball, plus 50g more unwound. I think I'm good there.
My other fear was that I'd made my first provisional cast on crochet chain too tight, and that it would make the stole gather in toward the middle. You can see what I mean with the pink on the leftmost section in the photo. But a few experts have assured me that if I can get those stitches back on the needle, I should be fine. In the meantime, I need to get back to knitting, and try not to think about the hundreds of stitches that will need to be picked up in the near future.
Yarn over and out.
