Jeanie is finished!
Note two things here:
1. Yes, it goes on forever, doesn't it? I stopped knitting because I wanted a shorter, hit-you-at-hip kind of shawl. Not sure I'm going to get that.
2. I'm a terrible blocker. I actually know how to do it better, and someday I would like blocking wires. But for now I'm just lazy. At least I'm blocking it at all. Lala called the design "subtle" when she saw it unblocked, when I was deciding whether to block it or not. When she called my two-month project "subtle," I ripped it off my body and into the drink for a good dunk. SEE the pattern. WORSHIP the design. And honestly, there is not much that is as fun as dropping six miles of stitches, right at the very end.
I loved this project, enough that I never got bored or angsty. Sure, I've wanted it to be done, but I still enjoyed it every time I worked on it.
This is truer to the color. (Yarn and color specified in pattern, linked above.)
Those two-by-two crosses? Are FOUR-BY-FOUR. Therefore, it's reversible -- looks just like this on the other side. O, joy divine.
And I will wear this to Stitches this weekend, so there will be modeled pictures. Just couldn't keep my doneness to myself tonight, though. Yeehaw!
