I finished the hitchhiker shawl! I must say this was a delightful knit and I can see why everyone keeps knitting this pattern over and over again. I enjoyed how quickly I memorized the pattern and of course how each section took a little bit longer than the last section. My love of garter stitch grows a little bit more every time I have a project that showcases this simple stitch design.
I did have enough yarn for 41 teeth AND I had yarn left over. Phew! Most of you loyal readers have knit this shawl but if you are a lone reader who hasn't you might want to give it a try one day.
