…. my Aestlight Shawl is done!
My little end of yarn went farther than I thought, as you heard, with a modified knitted-on edging. But not quite far enough.
Tuesday, I received a second skein of this lovely, lovely silver-threaded yarn from Astrid’s etsy shop, so I could bind off at last.
I blocked it last night, to the accompaniment of some lovely jazz. My helper visible in the picture there
had to be shut in the bathroom at the time because she would not be dissuaded from sitting on the wet shawl, biting my wooden yardstick, and eyeing the blocking pins speculatively.
However, this morning her partner in crime was helping with the shawl blocking, just to make sure there was the proper feline assistance.
After shooing off the ‘help’, I unpinned the shawl and tried it on.
It’s everything I hoped!
I am very, very happy.
Life is good!
