Major shawl-age

I don't think that an item has to be blocked to be considered a finished object, do you? I present to you, MAJOR SHAWL-AGE:

Phhhhhheewwwww. I'm relieved do be done with it, but yet a little verklempt because it was such a great pattern once you got into a rhythm.

I'm terrible at blocking, but I'll try not to procrastinate on this one.

After all my bitching about this heat, I'm sure this will come as no surprise - I am so pumped for the autumn season! We finally had a break in the heat wave, and it already got me craving cuddly scarves, hot tea and apple picking. I'm definitely utilizing my shawl for protection against the elements (mild may they be, since it's in Cali) for an outdoor wedding I'm attending in Sept.


  1. wow! I absolutely love it!! I love a great white shawl. I can't tell from the photo though... what are the dimensions? :)

    nice job!

  2. I think it's around 48" x 18"? There's a dog's butt in the upper right hand corner of the 2nd photo for reference.

  3. That is absolutely gorgeous. I get you credit when ever I use white yarn I swear I seem to pick up ever speck of whatever is around. I agree I can't wait for Fall to roll around here either.

  4. Way to go! You definitely deserve a "Chuck Norris".

  5. yah boo :D brilliant shawl-age there
