FINISHED! DONE! FINI! don't you love those words? I surely do. After binding off for three hours last night I slept with it. Today I washed it and put it over my California King bed... thank you very much, MASSIVE! I needed an afghan so I had this cashmere fingering I'd dyed and it was perfect. I used 4 balls and went with the square option of the shawl. I'm glad I b/o when I did as the size is perfect. Some photos for your enjoyment. More information such as needle size and yarn can be found on my Ravelry.com page I'm WendyMcD
So Mario, even though I'm running out of my third ball of yarn,,, and it's taking hours to get round the horn,,, AND I was on a KP cable that popped apart so off went all these live sts grrrrr... AND it's not like I don't have a million other things to do... I was wondering? What did you want this to do? When I see that last row on week 5 with it's 6 decreases I have to wonder if you didn't want it to continue? Perhaps for 2 additional rows?
See how nicely it is lining up? I love that large hole in the border and keep thinking that it would be fun to have a bit of a ruffle there since I will most likely be using this as an afghan.... lapghan. What do you think of continuing it at least another 2 rows (and the plain rows between) to spread out those ///\\\ in that last row? Then putting a seed st on for 2 more rows? That way I'd be for sure and all that it wont roll? I like your lace and picot edging but since this is a lapghan I'm wanting to be a bit more practical and subdued there. I did this in a Yarn Fairy hand dyed cashmere sock which just looks smashing in this application. I have another ball but I believe that the next one is a bit on the darker side. I can always go with that as it's the border so not a problem with the whole running out of yarn thing.
Course on the flip side I do have a book I should be getting out but I have been so very ill that it would be impossible to work on which is why I spent the day in bed with my lapghan. BTW, it's about a yard from center point to corner. Nice size eh what! PM me and tell me what you think I should do from here. THANKS!!
