Isabelle,
I have 16 repeats of Chart B on my needles totalling, I think, 240 stitches. I have now used 2.4 oz of tencel. I have a long ways to go. It should be about 72 inches across the top when done for a full shawl, but I guess it is up to you when you want to declare the project finished. My guess is a lot of the members are just buys with lives and knitting.
Keep up the good work and Happy Knitting!

Ah, Zabelle,

I am just on my 4th repeat of Chart B due to frogging. But I have lots of experience reading the chart. lol I will be knitting along with you for a while as I am knitting tencel and a slow knitter with very little time to knit.

Isabelle,

I am at the slogging stage, where things are working well, and not frogging, thank goodness. I have about 54 inches across on the top, and 36 inches down, if I am guessing correctly. My needle is short, so I can't spread it out to be sure, and I refuse to take it off the needle. I keep talking to the shawl, telling it that it will be photographed for the group as soon as it is finished, so please behave. LOL

I did 26 repeats of Chart B and then bound off.

The shawl is about 80 inches across.

And it is GORGEOUS!!

Margaret, Thank you for leading us thru this lovely shawl.

Debby, I give all the credit to Mary. Where is a picture of that beautiful shawl?

If you put my two shawls together, I would be finished, does that count?

I'm a little farther ahead on the wedding shawl than I am on the B&B shawl, at least 10 repeats of chart B done. And about 9 repeats on the B&B shawl.

I work on the wedding shawl in the evenings, been avoiding working on it during the day when there is too much distraction and when my daughter is around, but I may have to sneak in some knitting time early in the morning to get that shawl done for the shower in 2 weeks.
