Last week I all of a sudden became obsessed. As my family and friends can tell you, I ignored and neglected everything and everyone one. I had decided that I could get Oregon shawl finished before I saw the friend who I was knitting it for this week. At that time I still had about 12 hours to knit, some stitches to catch and secure, and of course washing and blocking to do. And I will remind you that I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old who are with me at all times. So… This was going to be a challenge!
And on Sunday, I washed and blocked it. Blocking really does make lace from a pile of wet noodles into a wonderful project. 😀 I think especially the detail picture of the corner shows what a difference blocking can make, if you compare it to the one above.
It took a day or 2 to dry, and then it was ready to be returned to it’s owner, my friend Patti. She was quite delighted with it. This made me happy, because I know it got a good home, where it and my work are appreciated. Of course I forgot my camera, so no pictures of the happy recipient. And of course it is still a bit warm here, too warm to wear a shawl.
Now, what is next…
