Finally, finally..

Shetland Triangle, from Wrap Style.

Shetland Triangle
So large I can hide behind it.

4 skeins of Manos Silk Blend in “Stellar.”

Finally, finally, FINALLY.
I love the nice, crisp edge I got from blocking and the stacking increases

US9 needles.

Shetland Triangle and an itchy nose.
Apparently, posing for finished object photos makes me sneeze.

I knit the main motif until I finished the third skein of yarn.  I started with the final ball, and finished the repeat, and then did the border.

Dan’s favorite shawl pose – “BATMAN”

Started April.  Knitting finished in June.  Finally blocked in August.

While this photo was being taken, I got two mosquito bites

Lovely. So lovely. The silk blend is soft and light. The print is a little busy with the lace, but it’s such a simple lace pattern that it works well. I love lace. I love how magical the blocking is – it goes from this squished knit pile of yarn to this beautiful delicate shawl.

This will be set aside and probably given to someone for the Holidays.

And now.. what shawl should I knit next?
