Tuesday Drive-by

Knitting is to block and get this in the mail to it's owner. I hope it will be a comfort.

Pattern: In the Land of Oz
Needles: size 7 Clover bamboo circulars
Yarn: Unplanned Peacock Studio Peacock Sock Yarn in the colorway Lobelia (eta: I LOVE this yarn, LOVE this colorway!)
Time to knit: May 21 - June 14, 2011 - OMG - I've never knit a shawl this fast before!

No modifications...I had hoped to add a second repeat of charts 2-3, but changed my mind when for whatever reason, I couldn't get them to line up (probably my fault). I decided it was smarter to stop now, there's time to block and then mail, hopefully early next week.

And I love the pattern. If I didn't have so many shawls in progress right now, I'd probably knit myself one right away. I'll hold off and try to get a few things finished instead.

And I promise: I'll get good shots of the blocking, because this is pretty much just a lump of unblocked lace and we all know how gorgeous it turns out to be once it's stretched to within an inch of it's life.

Waiting for the "beauty shots", but I think it will be lovely!

It's just beautiful - and I'm sure that it will be a tremendous comfort to its recipient (as well as to you, knowing that it's there when you can't be).

I love the nook covers in your previous post!!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
