Finished Object:

It's been a long time since I posted one of these 'Finished Objects'.
It's been a long time coming.
One trip to the doctor.
One fancy arm band.
A prescription of pain pills.
But I present to you.....

The Wedding Shawl.

Modeled by my friend C. Fatima received it last night...I don't think that until she got the tissue off did she realize what I had given her. I kept trying to throw her off by saying it would be done next week....ha! one big push on thursday night and I had that sucker bound off, blocked and it was dry by Friday morning. So I did what any self respecting knitter would do. I hauled it to work to show it off!

Here are the details.
Yarn: Knit Picks Lace Gloss, Merino and Silk
Pattern: Feather and Fan (cast on 96 stitches work four row repeat of feather and fan till you are sure you will die if you knit another row and then it should be long enough, if not you'll have a nice square doily for a table)
Needle Size: 9
Happiness: Pure Joy, not only to be done but also seeing it on Fatima last night at her bridal shower. It was everything I hoped it would be. It blocked so well I can't even find the row I screwed up on which is good :)

The wedding is in 3 weeks so I will post a photo of her in it then. For now I'm off to the races with mom's italian beef, Frosted Rice Krispy Treats and some veggies...
Have a wonderful Saturday!
