Yes, another blue shawl. It has to end sometime...... just not this time.
Isn't it HUGE!?
Hmmm, hard to tell. That could be dollhouse furniture it is hanging on, with teensy tiny little leaves on the dollhouse grass.
How about on the blocking board? That gives a better visual, unless of course the knitter living in the dollhouse has one, with teeny tiny little pins.
Speaking of blocking boards and pins, I spent about three hours pinning that thing out. By the time I finished it was dry already and I had to spray it wet again. Does it take other people that long? I wonder things like that sometimes. Like, is it just me? Am I slow? Are other people killing their backs pinning shawls out?

How about a little close-up of the nupps. I didn't think they showed up so much in person, but if the camera adds ten pounds, must have done that to the nupps! Did I mention...actually I know I didn't mention, that I knit this as a sample shawl for Jennifer of Spirit Trail Fiberworks and you might have seen it in person if you stopped by her booth at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival? Well, I did and you might have. I knit it super-fast so that she could have it in time, leaving out the beads to save time. It would have been heavy, I think, but I am considering knitting a smaller version of this shawl for myself and I might put the beads on the outside charts. This is a project that I cast on for, knit for a while and bound off with no issues apart from needing a little bit of a third skein to finish. SERIOUSLY!!!! It has been a while since that happened! No major tinking or anything. If only all of my knitting went that easily. I loved this pattern and I love this yarn, I might have most of a skein left to do it with!
Another close up just because lace is so fun to photograph.
Thanks Sally! I love Blue Mondays!
2010. Fifty-seven. So, I have another shawl finished that isn't entirely blue, another about to be cast on for that isn't blue at.all and another one in progress that is blue, but probably will wait. This makes three completed and shown toward 10 Shawls in 2010. I'm on a roll, people!
