i went camping this past weekend. i brought several things to knit including the shawl. except i didn't knit it much because i was afraid of getting it dirty. subsequently, i didn't get a chance to pose with it for a camp-ho-knits series.

i got home last night and, after a good scrub down, i spent an hour working on the shawl. it is now 612 stitches around and it takes me exactly 17 minutes to knit each round.
