Well, I suppose it's fitting that an Irishman won the green-wearing vote:
I have to admit that I whiffed on my Knitters' Chick question this week. On the 14th --- which is Pi(e) Day --- I meant to ask which KC you'd want to bake pie with. Or do math problems with, whichever.
This afternoon, I cast on 589 stitches for a shawl. At least I hope it was 589. I haven't worked the first row yet, and the plan is to count then. If it isn't the right stitch count, I plan to get there by increasing or decreasing as required. I refuse to try keeping up with that many again. It seems that there was a "formula" I once used to determine how much yarn you needed to measure out for the number of stitches you had to cast on. If it did exist, it's lost to time now, though. And not having enough yarn to cast on what you need remains the most aggravating part of knitting to me.
