It's off the needles!

The sweater shawl is finished, off the needles, and is being blocked.  The wool is taking a full 24+ hours to dry!  I thought I might be able to take a picture of it this morning to illustrate how it's worn, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.

As you can see, I really "lucked out" with the second sleeve, because I had to attach a new ball of yarn to complete it.  I didn't even try to see if the color striping was going to work, I just attached the yarn as it came off the ball and hoped for the best.  Whew!!


  1. You are going to have fun wearing this sweater shawl. Nice finish!

  2. Glad the luck was with you on the striping!
