A Finished Gift

February 3, 2011 at 12:41 pm 1 comment

Remember this? From July when I got my new skein winder and cheapo home depot yarn swift?

I got a guilt trip from Janet when she visited last week about not having finished here Christmas present. I pulled it out and realized I had seriously 13 rows left. So I picked it up during the evenings while watching movies with my sisters. After a couple months… It’s finished!

Isn’t it adorable? I’m determined to make shawls cool again. It’s an utterly practical accessory, and I mean really, look at this chic! She rocks the thing! I love the mental image of her cuddled in her room (which is decorated in similar colors), reading a good book with this delightful shawl thrown over her shoulders is very rewarding. Even though these aren’t really my colors, (I LOVE neutrals) I’m so tempted to make myself a shawl. Focus Maria! There’s a release schedule to keep!

Raveled here.

    The shawl came out gorgeous! If I didn’t have so many WIPs on the needles I’d get started on my Chinook kit. I didn’t dare buy this one too LOL!
