One more square

Here is one more square to add to the shawl. It is a Granny Square continuing with the same LB Kitty Hawk yarn and size I hook. There are 8 rows to the square with a tow of sc for edging to sew these together. I have been trying to figure out how many squares I would need for one shawl and after some searching, most of the rectangle shawls I've seen are 22" x 60" or 72". Which I would need about 12 squares for one. Not too bad seeing as I have 4 of them done so far.
I am also finding out that one skein of yarn yeilds one 12" square. Depending though, one had a smidge left over to help finish the edging on one of the squares. I may end up needing more but we'll see. I love the colors in this yarn. It is so soft looking and feeling. It won't drape well like the SS yarns do but I think it will be fine. It also doesn't frog very well due to the fuzziness of it, so I try not to make too many mistakes but, we all know how that goes. :o)

On Monday..Rachel and I bought 4 more fish to make a total of 8 we have now. We started with 9 last year and had a few of them die. I replaced some but, somehow we got down to 4. So..we'll see what happens with these.

Not much else today. Will try and stay cool.

Until next time...

Your shawl is coming along nicely. I get more squares out of a skein but I am not using specialty yarn. Do you have fresh or saltwater aquarium? I use to have Guppies, I loved watching them give birth to live fish.

I have a fresh water aquarium with a heater. It's suppose to stay between 76 and 78 deg. They are so fun to watch and relaxing also.

My daughter had an aquarium for many years - a small one in her room. One morning, about 5am, the leg of the table she had it on broke and we heard a tremendous crash. Fish (and other things) everywhere. No fish were harmed amazingly. They lasted a good long time afterwards. It sure woke us up in a hurry though. LOL
