I'm actually getting pretty good at knitting with this thing on. My tension isn't great but at this point I'm looking to get things done not for perfection. It's been almost four months now and it's getting close, real close to being over. I can't wait.
Tah daaa...the Seychelles shawl and the Galliano vest are finally off the needles.
The bind off for the shawl was scary. It has to be tight to form the curve of the cresecnt but it felt weird to do it.
It looks right even if it felt wrong. Blocking will tell but it's too cold and drizzly to play in water today.
I also had issues with the armholes of the vest. They stick out in a poufy 80's sort of way. Maybe some blocking will relax them so they hang right. I guess I'm narrower across the top than Dumpy Debbie so I didn't see this coming. I'll figure out a way to fix it. I almost always do.
