100°? 110°? Well more than 90!

And more still since the photo was taken..

It's beginning to look like a collar, --and will be worn sort of like a wrap around collar..

I think I am up to at least 140° now.

I figure a clock is 360°, and from 9 to 3
(or 3 to 9 if you insist on traveling clockwise!) is 180°

But my knitting is laid out counter clockwise, so I'll proceed to go backwards.. (not that this will surprize any one who knows me!)

9 to 6 is a right angle (90°) and that can be -divided into 3 parts (9 to 8, 8 to 7, and 7 to 6)

So 'each hour' equals about 30°.... I have knit from 9 to 6 and past 5, but not to 4--

9 o'clock to 6 o'clock is 90°, to 5 o'clock is another 30°, (120°!) to 4 o'clock, 150°--but.. I am not at 4 o'clock yet.. but I am closer to it now than I was when I took the photo! I hope to be to 3 o'clock before the night is out!..

I am looking forward to see how the strip will change the rows of knitting get longer.. I think there will be, because of the short row, some stripping, right up to the end.

Then I'll continue round to till I've made a complete counter clock wise revolution --9 to 3 is the front, and 3 to 12, and back to 9 will be the back.. then again from 9 to 3 for the overlap--or rather the underlap! The start (and narrow end) will be on top... the wide end will be underneath.

That's really cool looking. How wide is?

Wow, you kind of lost me, but it looks very pretty! :)
