The drama associated with this project is finally over. Behind this door, Shaelyn is being blocked within an inch of her life.
It is wonderful to finally have a designated blocking area that is cat proof. I used to have to do this on the dining room table and then carefully transfer it to a safer spot at night.
I am very happy with the way she turned out. All the color issues worked out beautifully and were worth the extra effort.
Those last two rows of over-dyed blue look like they belong there. Thank goodness.
Final Verdict: This was an easy-peasy pattern, perfect for beginning lace knitters. For a full sized shawl, it was actually a very quick knit and would have been done weeks ago if I had only put on my thinking cap and thought about things like yardage and stitch counts before I got started.
