I got something else, too, a bug that strongly recommended I stay home today. It's the perfect illness, as I am too uncomfortable to go to work but not too sick to knit.
The stitches in the swatch for Sitcom Chic fattened up in the soak, so now the gauge is spot on. Before casting on, I played with a couple of cast ons for 1x1 ribbing, settling on this one from Knitting Daily.
Last night, during the VP debate, I dropped the rest of the stitches on the Vintage Shawl, which did lengthen it to 60". That should be plenty long, especially once the fringe is added.
Now it is time for a nap.
