lace light

The Hamamelis, she is finished!

I blocked it twice. The first time I couldn't find my T-pins. Oy. I used wires only.

After finding my T-pins she blocked to the expected size. I had just a few yards of yarn left over after knitting up the medium sized shawl.

I heart it.

I can't wait for autumn...well, truth be told, I couldn't wait before this shawl was finished.

Now, I really, really can't wait!

Happy Friday-eve!!!

What a stunning piece you made! I love everything about it, the color, the pattern, the way you blocked it, the perfection of your knitting, the photographs . . .

I'm very jealous! Green with envy. That drape and color and design is simply perfect. If that was my shawl, I'd be waiting for those cool winds to blow, too. Just gorgeous! I'm off to put it in my Ravelry faves.
