A Woman On The Edge

Oh yes, gentle folk. I am but 7 rows from bind off of my Forest Canopy Shawl and I could not be happier! I'm in the midst of creating the pointy edge rows prior to calling it a day for this simple, but long-in-the-knitting triangular shawl.

I'd let a couple of other things jump the WIP line and, before you know it, I'd lost that lovin' feeling that I had in the beginning of the project. It had become monotonous as the rows got longer and longer. In the past week or so, I decided it was time to put up or shut up and finish the darn thing, especially since my mom's birthday is coming up in exactly 2 weeks and I never have anything finished in time for her. Guess what she gets this year!

After a soak and a stint on the blocking board and wires, we will have achieved finished lace shawl. This I solemnly vow because I need to move on to some serious baby knitting and new sock designs.

What a great gift. Does she know it's coming? I love to give hand made gifts to family because they know every stitch has some feeling in it. I just made a sock monkey hat for my daughter and I want to save it for Christmas but I am not good with the whole waiting thing. I want to give it to her NOW. It does not pay me to finish a gift too far ahead.

There's nothing like a finished lace shawl. The sense of accomplishment is one of the best highs around. :-)

I keep looking at that pattern. Someday. I hope there will be photos before the shawl goes off to Mom.

I kinda thought you were keeping that yarn for yourself.

Congratulations on finishing the FPS, and I am sure your mom will just adore it. I am considering the blocking wires - hard to use?
