AAAARRRRGGGGGGGHHHHH.

It has failed me. My squeeze technique. Go figure.



Ready to cast off....not enough yarn. I know what you are saying...yes, those of you with measuring tools, scales and such!

And I thought I could have done one more repeat! HA!

Off to the LYS to get an entire ball so that I can cast off. Thank goodness this yarn is splicable - spliceable? (is that a word? With the current scrabble games at night with the hubby...I need to know so that I can tuck it away for when needed! "It's a knitting term"....yeah, I use that one alot!)

I was able to cast off...don't worry I will use the rest of that regia silk ball;)



Dry my little shawl...dry.

that is just pure gorgeousness.

I am in love with everything you knit...

Beautiful shawl! My LYS just got in
Regia Silk and I bought enough to knit a pair of socks - so far she only has an olive brown and a denim blue, so when she has more colours that would please me for a shawl, I am off to spend some money!! I'll blow a breeze from here if it will help it dry!

Like Julsey said, gorgeousness (another knitting term for Scarabble?). Now I REALLY want more Regia Silk.

That shawl is .... ummm, what's the right word .... fantasmagorically incredulous. Sorry, that's two words. Fantasmacredulous. That's it.

Forget the knitting tips, the Scrabble tip is pricely. "quoxzak" yeah - It's a seven letter knitting term. It means "to wait patiently while a shawl dries."

Hi - linked here through my web research on the shawl - nice work!! I notice in the photo you've got it on what looks like a sew-ez blocking board...any comments to offer on it? I'm considering buying one (and making this shawl, obviously). You can email me directly - thanks!
