Okay, so I did it like I said I would. At 12:35pm Saturday I bound off the last stitch of the Fan & Feather Shawl.
Here is a picture of it being bound off. Crochet bind off for the edging detail.
And here it is all bound off & ready for blocking. 46″ across
And now for the blocking. I used my blocking wires & T-pins on my California King Sized bed.
I now need to steam all around the edging to make it nice & round, not pointy. Right now it measures 73″ from tip to tip. I do believe that it will grow a tad bit more when I steam the edging out.
I am so pleased yet a little sad that this long journey is done. It’s like when I come home from a long trip, I am sad that I am home. The same here. I am sad that this shawl is done being knit. Even though I now get to use it/wear it all the time. I sat for about 2 hours not knitting at all before I was able to get over my muddled brain and decide what to knit on next. I did decide that I would work on socks. The green STR socks to be exact. I finished them last night. Done. I did forget to take a picture of them though. To be posted later….
