How big should I make it?
So far I've used up exactly one skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk in knitting Tuscany. I'm trying to decide how big I should make the shawl. The pattern calls for knitting the 16-row pattern repeat 11 times and I've done it 17 1/2 times. As for measurements I haven't measured it across the top yet because it is all bunched up on my needles. But at the deepest point when I stretch it out is almost 26 inches. I've never blocked Sea Silk before so I don't know how much it might grow or not. At this point I'm sort of thinking I will keep on knitting this shawl and make it bigger with my second skein of Sea Silk that I have. What do you think?Abby
