Holding Out

Ok, I've been holding out on you. I've been getting closer and closer to finishing Madli's Shawl. I was almost close enough that I thought I could get it done for Stitches Midwest.

Well, I did. I finished and blocked it on Wednesday night. Late Wednesday night.

Here are the pictures:

How pretty!

What a cool board! And the knitting ain't bad either! Where can I get a board like yours?

Teri said...

Hooray! It looks stunning. Well done!

That is gorgeous! And I have one of those boards for my sewing, I have no clue why it didn't occur to me that it could be used for blocking. Hmm.

Thanks for the idea!

Congrats! It's done! I'm thinking of restarting mine now that I've held the original.
