The shawl that will not be photographed is done. It is still not photographed because it still needs ends woven in but the knitting is done.
I tried it on last night with bits of yarn hanging off and Whoa Baby, I think I am in love. All I can say is that Rhinebeck better be cold enough for me to need a sweater and a big honking shawl too. Oh wait a minute I am trying to talk D into tent camping with me that weekend. How about cool enough to enjoy a fire but warm enough that water does not freeze in the tent. What am I thinking? I married an Eagle Scout, we don't keep anything that smells like food in the tent, except for us tasty midwesterners.
I am also a bit of a goober too because I was thrilled that I started the shawl on June 16th and managed to finish it on July 16th. I can finish a big project in a month. Of course one of D's sweaters proved this a couple of years ago too. But it is nice to know me fingers are not losing any quickness.
Now by my count I have three semi-active socks on the needles, I should think about applying my finger nimbleness to them rather than casting on something new. There are a couple of other projects that have marinated quite long enough too. But let's not turn this into a guilt post. I have a lovely new shawl that I've dreamed about creating for months. Life is good.
I am off to weave in some ends.
