It is finally DONE!! I have loved and NOT loved working on this shawl. Lots of easy knitting which can be perfect sometimes and NOT perfect other times. I started taking it with me everywhere and trying to work on it as much as possible. I think I am going to LOVE owning this shawl. It is big, which is exactly what I wanted. I am very much loving the whole "wear a shawl instead of a sweater" idea. I am kinda in an old fashioned mood, and I think old fashioned people wore shawls. I finished Sunday night and blocked it on Monday. While it was still damp I wore it around the house. Not sure if that is really OK to do if you are blocking something...but I get to excited. Plus I cranked air down to like 67degrees so I would not DIE while wearing a wool shawl in June. Just in case you were wondering..I have like 17 pictures of ME wearing THIS shawl so if you want to go do something else you won't be missing much...just another angle of the same yellow shawl... You may be thinking that you see a small error in the back line of stitching...YOU DON'T..that is called "making this a ONE-OF-A-KIND". There is a difference. Don't judge the uneven hair pooling over the really big, yellow shawl..I cut it myself..remember!!
These next few pictures are me HUGGING THE SHAWL!! Hey..it's pretty exciting to me when I finish a project. I like to linger in the feeling of joy for awhile.
OK..now for a really sensible picture of me bending down in my woods with my really big yellow shawl on. I have seen lots of people take this type of shot with their knitted garments..right??
And this shot is one that Emily wanted me to try. She wanted me to wrap my really big yellow shawl around the tree, me stand behind it and smile really big...
So I did!!
And this is my thank you to my dear Sweet Bean who always joyfully takes 200 pictures of her mama wearing her knitted items in the middle of summer!!
