My Rock Island Shawl--Ta-da!
I love this thing so much, I almost can't believe it came off my needles. Don't get me wrong--it's not without mistakes--but I'm not going to point them out. I'll just wrap this beauty around my shoulders and feel the love.
Unblocked, it measured 21x46 inches, and blocked out to 42x64 inches. I probably could have stretched it a bit more but this is exactly the size I envisioned. Anything bigger would probably look silly on me--I'm on the short side.
If the sun ever decides to stay out for an extended period of time, I'll get DH to take a photo of me wearing it. For now, here's one of those "I took it in the bathroom mirror" shots, and an artsy-fartsy photo.
There's more details on my Ravelry page, for those who are interested.
And can you believe I already have another project going? Stay tuned...
