F.O. + Sale Reminder

Before I dive into pictures of my FO, a quick reminder for everyone: I'm having a sale today and tomorrow in my Fearless Fibers Etsy shop. You'll find the sale items with a listing title that begins with "Sale" and you can also browse the sale items by clicking on the store section labeled "Sale Items."

I listed the sale items earlier this morning and many have already sold, but there are still lots of great items at bargain prices available, so stop on by and have a look!

Now, on to knit talk . . .

Last week, I showed you blocking photos of the Print O' The Waves Shawl by Eunny Jang that I made for my niece to wear to her prom. As promised, I have a couple of photos to show you now of the completed, blocked shawl. Unfortunately, my husband has been working, working, working and so I was left to try to get photos on my own. The result, unfortunately, is less than terrific photos (big understatement - sigh).



Here's my attempt to get a photo with the light coming through, but as I learned, it's not a very good photography technique to hang one's arm off the edge of a balcony and then hold a camera in a shaky position somewhere that seems roughly as though it might capture a glimpse of the draped item.

I used around 2 1/2 skeins of my FF Laceweight Merino in the Hush colorway to complete the shawl.

I shipped the shawl off to my niece and asked my sister to please try to get some good prom night photos that show the shawl. If I ever receive those, I'll be able to show you some better pictures. All in all, I'm really happy with how it turned out. I just hope my niece likes it as much as I do!

Other than the ripple stitch afghan throw that I began a few weeks ago, I now have clear sticks and endless possibilities in front of me! I know I need to get a pair of socks going, since it's been a while since I've worked on socks and my hands are missing the familiar and comforting feel of going round and round on toothpick sticks. But what will my next larger project be? Hmmmmm ... such fun!

Great day to all!

Happy planning ;-) (oh, how I wish for that particular feeling... but with all the things I have on the needles right now, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to cast on for something new)...

Wonderful stole!!! And your not half bad at that photo thing ;-)

Beautiful stole, and the "hanging off the balcony" shot is lovely. Glad that you're still with us, though!

I think your photos look great! And that stole looks even better. It's just lovely.

Oh the shawl is just beautiful!! I am sure your niece is going to be so excited when she sees it. I hope that you will get some pictures of her in it.
