Basketcase: A(n) FO

Well. Apparently it has been been two weeks since I last posted. And it took me every day of that to finally get around to blocking.
I don't mind telling you, this step scared the beans out of me.

I'll try to get a decent full-size shot tomorrow.

Flowerbasket Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark.
It was good. But I'm tired now. It's going to go to my grandmother tomorrow when I go to visit.

Sore back is driving me crazy, can't sit still for too long. Technical details tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, it's also my one-year blogiversary. Any celebratory suggestions?

Ooooh, looking so great already!

I'm sure your grandma will love it! Get her to model the wing-span shot. ;-)

Beautiful! The perfect color for that pattern!

My fav part of lace knitting is after the pinning/blocking wires is finished. I must walk by the drying lace at least a million times admiring how different it looks now that it isn't a "lace blob".

Hi micheal,

oh my i just love it and also the beautifull pictures you took. I guess that your grandmother is very pleased with it?? I would ;-)

Best wishes with your back...not nice but perhaps some pain killers will do the tric???

No idea for blogiversary...i'm sooo un original :S... maybe it's original to NOT do that and just make some eye candy with some great photo's of last year knitting in a sort of slideshow??

take care...
