Yes Virginia, the Shawl really does end


We all thought this day would never come. The day that the shawl that never ends actually - well - ENDED! Yes, it's finished, cast off the needles and almost ready to wear (it just needs some blocking). It is however, very, very, very long. The pattern says 18" wide and 58" long but it is really more like 70+" long. It does make for a good wrapping shawl though. Not quite sure where I'll wear it but I'm trying to come up with something. Since I've got one shawl off the needles I was forced to get another one on. I just started the Secret of the Stole. It's really fun to be working on something along with hundreds of other people at the same time. I'm sure as I start to fall behind it won't be as fun but so far so good. I am however intimidated with respect to the people who finished it the very first day! Also I've started a new blog called PhotoFryday - come visit me there and see a new photo every Friday. Hope to see you there!
