Edging Along

I am plodding along on the border for my Leftover Pi shawl. 
I am very happy with the way it looks so far.  I think I mentioned I purchased an extra skein of yarn, so the border would be all the same colors.  That yarn, Knit-Picks Stroll Handpaint in the County Fair colorway is delightful.  The colors are clear but subdued and I really like it.
But the border is still only about half done.
Eight stitches out, seven stitches back, then knit the last stitch with a body stitch for each body stitch.  That's sixteen stitches for each body stitche.    Hmmm.  There are 576 body stitches, so that means 9216 total stitches to complete the border..
Excuse me while I go ponder that revelation.
