Blue Shawl Progress

I just finished up the second skein of yarn we bought Sunday for the blue shawl I'm making as a Christmas present for my sister-in-law. I didn't expect it to go that fast. I'll have to stop now until we can go pick up the rest now that I have a fairly good idea how many more I'm going to need.

Since I reached 35 rows that measure approximately 33 inches and that is approximately halfway for the row work that means I need two more for the row work and a fifth for the tassels for which I wouldn't need more than a quarter skein if that. Though I suppose I could make do with four skeins if I stop crocheting around row 60 leaving enough of skein 4 for the tassels. I'll see how it 'fits' at that point and decide.

With this going so fast, I may go ahead and add one or two of the other items I considered before settling on the shawl--place mat and napkin ring setting for four; dishrags; a doily, coasters; drawstring evening bag; winter scarf. All crocheted of course.. Oh well plenty of time to think about it.
