And here she is right after a little washing and a zillion pins. This is a queen size bed.
I was a little taken aback by the beauty. I can't believe I made this. In 15 days. It truly was a challenge and I deserve that medal! But, I didn't do it alone. I've got to thank my Sugar Daddy. Without him, the kids would have been starving and wallowing around in trash these past few weeks. I think he knows that I am extremely grateful for his support of my "dream" and I'm going to be repaying him for it dearly. I already promised not to knit another stitch until the Olympics are over. I know that's only 1 more day...but that's a big deal for me and he knows it.
Here's a closeup. Try not to cry.
I used 100% baby alpaca (Perlita brand) color 2105. A skein is 437 yds. This shawl took about 880 yards. Good thing I bought that third skein or I would have been in a big mess! I loved the yarn, the pattern, the joy of blocking, and I'm sure I'll love the finished product!
