The value of natural light.

I finished the Flower Basket Shawl on Thursday and I am exceedingly happy with how it turned out. It is the most beautiful thing I have ever knit. So much so, that I can not shame it with crappy FO pictures. I attempted a quick photo shoot this morning after the blocking pins came out, alas it was a cloudy morning and none of the shots came out. Tomorrow I will attempt another photo session with The Beautious One because it is Saturday and I will finally be allowed free time during the daylight hours. This working from 8-5 is really not helping my self-diagnosed Seasonal Affective Disorder and I really miss the sunlight. So I leave you with The Happy Mistake that is the best part of this shawl.

En pointe: The Happy Mistake


As I mentioned previously, I ran out of blue/green Koigu 4 rows from binding off. This resulted in an emergency trip to The Tangled Web in Chestnut Hill to buy 2 more skeins of the addictive beautiful colors. I bought a berry flavored colorway and it seriously made the shawl. It gracefully draws attention to the lovely points on the scalloped edge. My mistake in calculations was totally worth it. I love it.

I promise better (more encompassing) pictures tomorrow. ♥!
