I made some good progress on birch while flying. I switched to Inox before I left which made the k2tog tbl’s a lot easier – and the join is amazing. This pattern is pretty simple, but after a few of the decrease rows, I’d count the stitches to make sure I was on track. On the two-hundredth or so stitch I realized that I was hunched over and a few inches away from my knitting. Like getting that close to the stitches would make the count accurate! I’m knitting the stocking stitch version of this shawl and love purling back on the even rows. One ball finished, two to go.
