A New Year and a New Shawl

I finished knitting Adelita on January 1 and got it blocked on Sunday. I like to show how lace looks prior to and after blocking because it’s still amazing to me. :-) This first one is obviously before it’s been blocked. It’s clearly not ready for wearing in this state.

The post blocking photos aren’t fantastic since the weather is terrible for outdoor photography but it’s what I have for today.

Much better, right? I forgot to measure it’s dimensions before but it’s much larger now for sure. It now measures 68″ x 24″. For those who don’t want to click through to the Ravelry link above, I used 1.66 (714yds.) skeins of Classic Merino Superwash Sock yarn in the color Jade. I took me a little over 3 months, but I had three shawls going, so it would probably have taken 3-4 weeks if I only worked on this. I still have one more shawl on the needles, Simple Gifts. It doesn’t look much different from my last post, but I have been working on it some as well.

Oh, anyone remember that cake I made for Christmas? It was delicious. I guess it was worth all the fuss. :-)

Happy New Year!!
