Mystery Solved

I finished Marina's mystery shawl and it is the bomb-diggity.  I think my favorite part is the tulip border.  I plan to cast on the second one when I finish the feministy.com great cowl KAL.  (More details on that front forthcoming...)

Mystery Shawl Update

Here's another picture of the mystery shawl in progress.  I had just finished clue 3 of 6 in the photo.  The knitting was complete as of 8 Feb... but the blocking?  Blocking will have to wait until next weekend I think.  I have a few spots in the lace pattern that are completely goofed up, but on the bright side, I will have a chance to do better next time.  This was a practice shawl for one I will knit in blue for a friend's wedding.  She wanted one to match her bouquet, and given the flower lace themes in this pattern it would be quite apropos.  Plus now I know approximately how long it will take to knit (about a month), which should ease some of the pressure.  I have plenty of time for the June nuptials.

To Weave, Weaving, Woven

I "finished" my first woven object!  (The quotations indicate that while the weaving is finished, I still have some work to do on the fringe...)  It's a scarf/table runner/thing.  back to knitting to catch up on my mystery shawl!
