Losing Momentum

I got very nervous when I only had this much yarn to work with on this year's Sheep and Wool Shawl.

Thanks to the Elizabeth Taylor marathon on TCM, I got all the newly spun singles plied. Now they are dry and ready to go.

I need one more good movie marathon to get this thing done. It is so easy to start a shawl and so hard to put on those last few long rows. Of course there is the anticipation of blocking. That helps to keep you going. You can knit a million sweaters and feel happy about them but blocking a shawl is like no other feeling-it's that good.
