Please do not take this the wrong way but, Yeah the holidays are over!! Too much stress going on for my liking. When I told Hubby that I was most likely not going to be knitting gifts next year and he was happy. He told me that he hated to see me stress myself out and turning into a Grinch
Anyway everything is back to somewhat normal. There were a few gifts I didn't get to finish but they will be finished soon and everyone understands.
I have lots to post about and today I am going to start with one of my favorite things that I made. It was for my Mommy. It was my first lace and first shawl. It is Keri.
I used Palette (from Knit Picks) in red. It was really fun to knit and well I have a list of lace shawls I want to make. =)
Here is the pic I first post - it is unblocked
Here it is in color and blocked
I have read about the magic of blocking and well I didn't really "get it" until I did it. Wow. You go from this lump of knitting that you really can not see well to this amazing piece of knitting.
