Today I finished the blocking, tidied the ends and handed over the Faroese Shawl (rav link) for my LYS. I am so glad to see it gone. Not that it was hard to knit or anything or any sort of a problem - come on I was knitting with cashmere! Reclaimed, less guilt making cashmere. No it was just it had been about for Long Enough and I needed to move on and start something else. Or just spin madly for the Tour de Fleece.
I guess you'd like some pics, eh?
(can't believe that I took a pic almost a month ago that basically shows the very same image only half as long!)
During blocking - blasted hard to block cos of the shoulder shaping, so only the back is being blocked here
(and now a front)
the shoulder shaping that lets it do this
(Stunning self portraits, eh? That grin is one of relief, a) because it is finished and b) because I didn't have to drink another litre of water and hang on until I was busting. TMI? Want more? Did you know they put condoms on the ahem internal probe heads? I didn't. It was an amazing learning experience.)
