I am through 3 sections of the shawl. So fart I seem to be able to get a section done a week. Of course each section gets a bit bigger, so it gets a bit harder each week. I'm thinking it will be 6 sections in the end or so. I plan on continuing until I run out of yarn or just have enough to bind off. So far I really love this shawl and the gentle rhythm of the stripes.
