I thought that a great plenty and felt good about it as the ball did not seem to be disappearing quickly at all.
Then all of a sudden at about 22 inches the ball looked very light. Big space in the center.
I weighed the ball - 3.2oz. I weighed the knitted piece - 5.1 oz after taking out 0.1 for the needle.
Halfway is about 28 inches. You do the math. I have several times and just cannot seem to make the ounces stretch. More than half of 5.1 + 3.2 does not make less than 3.2.
Shoot - Do I frog the whole thing, thereby relegating the last week of knitting to zero? I put the project down and proceeded to work on something simpler - T's baby sweater to be precise. Easy easy and I know I have plenty of yarn for that.
But the shruggy was sitting there and I love the yarn and I love how it was turning out.
