A Finished Object for Friday!
To be absolutely honest, I finished Carla Kisielnicki's Wisteria Arbor Shawl, from the absolutely fabulous Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders book, in May 2011. I am always loathe to get out the blocking paraphernalia, so I left it unblocked and wore it as a scarf.
Finally, 15 months after casting off ... I cleared off the table and got out the pins, wires, mats, and spray bottle. Now it's blocked.
Now I have something warm for my shoulders and neck!
If I remember correctly, I bought the Merino roving from one of my favorite large suppliers, Pacific Wool and Fiber.
Now I'm off to re-block the orange lacy thing that is featured at the top of my blog. I've blocked it once, but now I think I'll try to block it so it's long and narrow rather than square.
Then, before I pick up another knitting needle, I'm going to go finish beading the other side of the Judy Jacobs Crest of the Wave Scarf, which I abandoned after beading one side.
I either needed a break from the tedium of stringing beads onto a wire then onto a string, stabbing my fingers repeatedly ... or Molly Cat was getting on my last nerve with her interference. Probably the latter.
Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone! For my British and Norwegian friends, and visitors from all over, have a great weekend!
