Done but Not Quite Finished

culpepercomplete-preblocking (1)

I went only two days over three weeks in completing this project, and that is still a record breaker for me. Yay me!

It certainly doesn’t look like much at this stage though does it? But just you wait…the blocking will bring it all out. I can’t say I am relishing the process of that however. A semi-circle doesn’t lend itself very well to blocking wires, at least not the set I have. I only have 30 or 40 T-pins which is plenty for using wires but I can only use those across the top edge. I will have to make a quick run to Joann’s for more T-pins before I can block this. The only thing that is motivating me to do the job is seeing the finished product. It’s kind of like labor isn’t it? The only way to the end is the pain of going through it. Smile

I am at this moment utterly bereft of any knitting. Nothing is on the needles and I haven’t picked a definite next project. I have plenty of ideas mind you, but can’t settle on any of them. Elijah needs a new hat, so that may be a quick interim project while I mull my options. Main contenders are a few more shawls, but I am sort of itching to do a sweater just for me. I haven’t done one in quite awhile and it’s been ages since I made myself something that wasn’t for the booth. Stay tuned for an update on this soon and of course for the amazing transformation of Culpeper Shawl.
