Elizabeth Zimmermann's Pi Shawl-Plain, #6 update

The front and back of said shawl. It measures about 24 inches across in it's folded in half form. Another ten rounds of plain knitting. add a border and it should be done. After it is finished and blocked it should be much larger.

When I first saw the top picture I remarked to my husband that the shades in the yarn make it resemble the swirls of a galaxy. You may have to back up from the screen to see it better.

So that is my update after I finished skein #3 and just added #4. We did a rough calculation and the number of stitches that will have been knitted when I get to round 96 will be @ 73,719.

Thanks for stopping by.
