Simple Yet effective

Tangled Yarns has been having monthly KALs with each participant in the draw for a prize.
Last month the KAL was the Simple Yet Effective Shawl by CosmicPluto. I purchased the kit from the stores website and started knitting. The kit contained Noro Silk Garden Sock, the pattern calls for Noro Kureyon Sock or at least 400yds of other sock yarn.
I’ve only just realised that this is where the problem was. Silk Garden Sock contains 328 yards (not 400). The result is a lovely scarf but it is very small.
I’ve just ordered another ball of the sock yarn. I’m going to unpick my cast off, unpick the few rows of lace edging and knit it a few more inches bigger & add a nice edging. This will make it a more wearable size.

My other problem is it is December 16 & I have done NO (!!!!!) Christmas shopping.
