FOs:2008, jenny's shawl, lace

it’s blocking!

It's blocking!

I’m working from home today, so I took the opportunity to block the shawl. The final few rows nearly killed me, I think (a cast-off that requires you to essentially knit every stitch twice, when there are a good 450 stitches in the row…well, it takes awhile). But now that it’s all pinned out…holy crap, it looks so beautiful! By the way, that’s a king-size (well, actually, two twin-sized beds pushed together with a king-size mattress cover over them) bed that it’s blocking on, which means it’s nearly six-feet long, from tip-to-tip. Wow.

Here are the stats:
Pattern: Sivia Harding’s Shetland Garden Faroese Shawl
Yarn: Knitpicks Bare Merino/Silk. 2 full skeins, plus part of a 3rd.
Needles: size 5 Knitpicks Harmony circulars
Time to knit: January 16 – February 27th
