Still knitting away at the Flower Basket Shawl

I've added 12 rows since you saw it last week! I've also made some decisions regarding how much more I'll do on it. I will finish the repeat of the Flower Basket Chart I'm currently working on (8 more rows) and then I will begin the Edging Chart (10 more rows). I wasn't going to work another repeat of the Flower Basket Chart after I finished the last one, but looking at the size of the ball of yarn I have left, I'm pretty sure (cross your needles, knock on wood and anything else you can think of to distract the knitting goddess) that I can do an extra Flower Basket Chart repeat and then the Edging Chart and have enough yarn. Of course after deciding that this was my plan and starting the last Flower Basket Chart right before bedtime, I had two separate dreams involving running out of yarn mid-project. Neither project in my dreams was the Flower Basket Shawl (one was the Vine Lace Cardi - there's no way I won't have enough yarn for that, I can spin more; and the other was actually not a real project at all, but a dream project so I don't really care if I run out of yarn on it - HA HA). Of course I could have weighed the yarn I have left just to guesstimate, but that seemed too complicated last night. So either the Flower Basket Shawl is well on its way to getting finished, or it will go down in a ball of flames as I run out of yarn 10 yards from the end - either way, it should make for some good blogging!

I am always nervous about running out of yarn. When I made my clapotis I only had 1-2 feet of yarn left over and the suspense was killing me at the end.

Good luck with the guestimate of how much further you could go.
