Reunion Shawl

I cut it close but my Antarktis shawl was finished in time for last weekend. I had a back up in case I fell short but I was done by midnight Thursday. And it was dry and ready to go by Saturday morning.

As usual, I have no modeled shots. And I should have. There must have been 100 pictures taken Saturday night but not many of them showed off the shawl very well. 

I loved the way the colors blended when they were knit up. 

It actually reminded me go a larger version of Brickless. And there was no worry about doing the extra repeat - it grew so much on the last portion.  I wouldn't have had enough yarn to do the extra repeat anyway.  

Another shawl for the collection.  And on a chilly day like today I'm thankful for them!  

Enjoy your weekend!

It's beautiful Donna and I'm so glad you were able to wear it. I was thinking of you today as I knit on my shawl, you are my inspiration!

Happy weekend to you!
