Tra la la, tra laaa la, tra lalalalalaaaaa….

It is DONE.


I’ll weave in the ends this afternoon when I’m sitting at the Purple Purl.
And then I’ll traipse around in it for a little bit.

And then I get to knit something new. I can’t even tell you how exciting it is to have this finished. This is 1900 yards of finished knitting. Thanks for the nice yarn, Wellington Fibres. And Jared Flood, even though I might have cursed your name once or twice during the miles of garter stitch, it sure is a pretty finished result.

  3. Hooray! Happy Friday! Gorgeous work!

    Its beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

    I am pretty jealous, since I’m currently done 4 out of 79 border repeats on Anne Hanson’s Ice Fantasia shawl, and as far as I can tell, I will never get to 79.

    Spectacular! After waiting so long for a finished object to materialize, it must be really rewarding to sit back and survey your accomplishment. The stitches are so perfect! I stand in awe of your talents once again! And am trying to get up the nerve to work some lace of my own to be proud of. :)

  7. You did a great job!!
