Endless edging

On and on and on I knit. It should have been obvious – an edging that is knit perpendicular to the body of a circular shawl is going to take forever. This particular shawl is about 500 stitches around the bottom edge. (Thank goodness I didn't do another doubling to 1000 stitches and opted to count on aggressive blocking to increase the length.)I have been knitting nothing but edging for days and am only about 1/4 of the way around... How many synonyms are there for the word "tedious"?

So far i knitted scarves, and finishing on a short sleves sweater :) I'm wondering if you can tell me more about the group? and also where is a good place to shop for yarn? I love your yarn projects~ they are lovely!

Do come to the knitting group, Taromochi. It is a nice group of knitters at all levels -- all of whom would be happy to share advice on things like where they shop for yarn.
