Why is there soooo much maths in knitting...

I've got an idea I'd like to try for a lacy edge to a shawl - sadly it's involving way more maths than I'm used to! I think even excel is about to explode with the number of formulas I'm using to work out the perfect stitch count and row number to get the lace repeat working correctly.

Anyhoo, a FO that used some of that maths to get the basic shape right has just been bound off, blocked and photographed to prove I really am making things at the moment.

A small shawl to wear in the style of a kerchief. I'm not happy with the size entirely or the colours for that matter but as a test knit it's fine. Watch this space for it's big sister shawl, which is still on paper but very soon to hit the needles!!!
