Just barely

I finished my handsome triangle tonight. Right now it's not looking especially handsome, or even triangular. I'll be sure to post post-blocking pictures later.

For those of you (Peggy and Rebecca particularly) who watched me fret about the yarn amount at Ferals tonight, I had JUST enough. Here's the leftovers:

It won't even register on my digital scale. That's less than a gram, y'all.

A responsible knitter would now return her attention to her many UFOs. An irresponsible knitter would start another shawl. What do you think is going to happen, hmmm?

Wow, that one is beautiful even PRE-blocking. Great job! I of course vote for casting on something new :)

I thought you would have enough - you remember I reassured you at Feral's, so I'm relieved I was correct. Such good planning with your spinning just enough yarn! :}
Yeah, let's call it 'planning' and move on.
I say 'move on to a UFO'. It's so satisfying to finish a UFO. Ask Rebecca -- she used to have a personal rule* about it:
R's *P.R. - finish 2 UFOs before starting any 1 new project (socks don't count as a project).
It worked! She cut her UFO list down from 30-odd to a managable number.
Ask her! She'll tell you...
