I Made It Fit!

I made the tab fit! Just in time to document the finish of the Swallowtail Shawl! She is being blocked as we speak. Here is her history . . . . Her humble beginning . . .
Above, with all her knitting finished!
Taking a little bath (while mommy bit her nails and hoped all the color didn't leach out!)

All wrapped up and drying off . . .
Blocking!
A detail shot. I love the pointy things at the ends! I had so much fun knitting this. I totally don't wear shawls but I love knitting them so I'm going to have to find someone who enjoys wearing them to gift them to! This one is small, though and you could wear it like a dressy scarf (except I don't have anywhere dressy to go) so I think I'll keep it, given that it's my first one and all! Gotta finish my grasshopper twist socks (except mine are raspberry twist!) before I start another shawl . . . maybe. :)

Good job getting the camera to work, excellent job on the Swallowtail. Can I have it? Hee hee kidding, of course. That is unless you just WANT me to have it. No, really, just kidding.

But I wouldn't want to insult you or anything. OK, If you insist. :)
