  3. Hi Michelle,
    I met you at the Yarn crawl. I’m sure you met hundreds of people. My name is Paula Johnson and I work at the Stitchin’ Post in Sisters. I am writing to let you know we are going to do a KAL using your Garland Shawl pattern. I do have one question however; I noticed the gauge is for stockinette and the shawl is knit in mostly garter. Also I don’t think I will be abl to get 23 rows for 2 inches in stockinette. Please advise.
    Thank you,

    • Hi, Paula: Thanks for contacting me. Don’t worry about the row gauge; gauge is not critical. And I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to be garter stitch, not stockinette. Sorry about that!

      When are you starting your KAL?
