Are you hungry? How about a little piece of pi?
I know my own pi doesn't look half as tasty as the first pi, but behold the spiraling blob. It's not a metaphor for my life, at least I hope it's not. It's my attempt at pi. Or more precisely, a circular pi shawl. I won't be so cheeky as to say I'm in control of this blob. I'm not. I'm just doing my best to put one needle in front of the other in order to go someplace pretty awesome, and to help avoid deep thinking.
Hey, who got π on the floor?
This has been an interesting process so far. What began as nine stitches, doubles at rows 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64. Although you can't tell from its blob-like appearance, that needle is now holding 576 stitches. According to the Gates and Ladder pattern, I can keep going until I have up to a total of 158 rounds. There aren't directions for what I should do at row 128. I won't have pi anymore if I don't double my stitches at that point. WWYD? Double or not? Since two rounds takes me about an hour (2 rows), take your time getting back to me. I think we have some. Time, that is. In the meantime, I'm calling Rose. She's the one who made me start this whole mess.
