So, I stopped playing around with the yarn and settled for a pattern that I like and cast on. They are a bit tight with five “arcs” but luckily they aren’t for me but for someone with slightly thinner wrists. If I make a pair for myself (there are plenty of Vacillate leftovers after my four shawls) I will do six arcs. Despite this pair being on the tight side I like them a lot. Two repeats will be more than enough and since things are happening all the time, it’s a quick knit. They are a bit finicky though, much more so than the shawl itself. Now, knit on, knit more!
