It's Done! It's Done! Did I mention it was done?
Yup....My Hypercrazy is off the needles and blocking. The bind off took me over 2 hours.....I was texting it to show ppl I was almost done. I am pretty proud of this shawl. The lighting is not the greatest, but you can see how big it is. I am also using my new blocking board made out of insulation board that a great friend, Anne, made me. I love it! When I soaked it, the water turned a little purple...but the yarn is just perfect for this pattern......look at the close ups....I have a picture of it as I started to bind off and then a close up as it is stretched out on the blocking board....I could have stretched it even more, but I was tired, and just wanted it blocking so I could take a picture. I have about 82 grams left....so probably enough for a hat or pair of socks or mitts or something.
I will still finish my second Hypercrazy in the Biker Chick colorway, just not for a while. This was for my SNB's 1st qtr KAL.....for the 2nd qtr, we are going to knit Hojas y Bayas shawlette. It is a much smaller shawlette and uses about 260 yards (not 1400). This Shawlette is designed by a friend of mine that I met at SNB many years ago.....her name is Dana and she has some wonderful designs. Check out her blog too. I ordered 4 skeins of chroma fingering weight for this shawlette from knit picks (paperback, prism, lollipop, watercolor)....I think I am going to use watercolor.....I am not sure yet.
I worked a little bit on my Miss Babs Knitting tour scarf....it is a very easy pattern to memorize. I have made myself a calendar so I can be done with this by end of April...but I am already behind, but hope to catch up tonight.....
Paige starts her first day of work at a barber shop today, they will have her as a receptionist till she finishes her boards and is licensed.....I am sending her lots of great vibes, feel free to do the same! Well, I wish I had more to report, but the Hypercrazy sucked up all of my time this week...but it was worth it.
Have a great week everyone!
Happy Happy Knitting!
