I hit the halfway point (of the stitch count) for my NaKniShawlMo project over the weekend. I haven't been taking pictures daily because, frankly, that would be really boring for all involved. Here's where I am at the end of Day 9. See what I mean?
You can tell it's bigger than it was on Days 1 and 2, but you still can't tell how much progress has been made. So, let's put it this way:

I am 7 days ahead of schedule.
I have completed 53.76% of the shawl (based on stitch count).
This means I've knit 41,408 stitches so far.

I'm pretty impressed with myself, if I may be so bold. Right now, the rounds are 580 stitches long. That's quite a slog, but I'm persevering. I think by the end of this week, I'll be able to start working on the edging. Honestly, that's where I usually fall apart when knitting shawls. I knit a couple of repeats of the edging, and I'm ready to be done. 71 repeats of anything is tedious. 71 repeats of a 16-row edging that is 224 stitches per repeat is exhausting. I just get bored after knitting a couple of repeats. That's going to be the big challenge. Can I do it? Sure! Will I enjoy it? Well...... I'm trying to have a positive attitude.
