I've been working on the Percy Shawl as an OWL (Ordinary Wizarding Level) exam since September. By the end of October, I was supposed to knit at least two ounces of the four ounce ball of yarn. By mid-October, I had knit just over one ounce. Almost six hours knitting on planes consumed only 1/4 ounce of yarn. Although each row was not particularly long yet, it required some concentration even if I only had to count to five or six. I missed the 2 ounce mid-term goal by 3/4 of an ounce.
Now it is the 29th of November and I had hoped to have at least 3 1/2 ounces knit. I haven't quite even managed to get 2 1/2 ounces knit up. It just takes too long and, between travel and work, the past few weeks haven't been conducive to complicated lace knitting.
I do still like the pattern and the yarn. It just won't be completed as my OWL this term.
