Finished!

I finished my shawl! I had started making a neck scarf with this beautiful Lorna's Laces, sport weight yarn a while ago. I so thoroughly enjoyed knitting with it and I love the colors so much (called "Child's Play") that I asked the LYS to order me more so I could make this into a shawl. They did . . . I did . . . yay!

Upon consulting with the KnitWits yesterday morning (and with great deliberation for the last few days) I decided to bind off with a picot edge, and then decided to pick up stitches on the other 2 sides and picot those. Ah! I'm so glad I did - it looks fantastic!

It's beautiful. The picot edging was the right decision. Proud of you.

Thanks, Your Highness, most Sockliness!

Slang - thanks for noticing! They're new glasses. I might be coloring my hair to match soon, too, because I promised the kids at the library that if enough of them read this summer I would color my hair. LOL They're actually reading!
