Promise Shawl Complete


I finished the shawl the day before I wanted it wrapped up and ready to go.  As always, blocking made the lace work pop.  It truly is a magical even in a knitter's world.


Many of you have asked, "did she like it?"  She did, unfortunately when she opened the shawl I was in the moment and forgot to take a photo. The whole opening up present event was a blur and I remembered at the end.  Isn't that life?  I'm glad I was paying attention, but boy where was my mind?  I'll blame it all on the wedding brain fog.


I'm happy knowing she has something to wear if she gets cold.  The wedding is at the end of July and the chances of being cold are quite slim, but still a chance is a chance.
