Last week, I finished knitting something for a new friend as part of a knit swap.
The theme of our swap was “movies inspired by books”, and it turned out that she and I both loved a certain trilogy.
Once I saw that she had a garter-stitch shawl in her queue, I knew what to make her. I cast on while we rode a bus to Hyannis, but it took me a few weeks to finish the damned thing.
Earlier this week, she got the shawl…and you know what?
She liked it.
I also (nominally) finished something I made for myself.
I say “nominally” because I still need to weave in the ends and block it. Still trying to figure out if I should make the button tab or not — I’ve got a whoooooooooooole lot of yarn left over.
Since the bottom of the collar also curls up, I may want to tack that down as well.
Action pictures to follow…
