Shetland Garden Faroese Shawl
Designed by Sivia Harding
Started July 2 (?)
Completed knitting July 29th
Yarn – Rowan True 4 ply Botany Nettle

Well, its all done but for the blocking – and I am thrilled!  Was most worried about running out of yarn – and JUST made it (the yarn has been discontinued forever!)  Not that hard a knit mainly keeping track of which chart when – at one point I had three pages with markers on my “knitting stand” (a music stand) by the sofa (my knitting spot).  You have to knit many of the charts in reverse which took a bit to get used to – but was fine as I didn’t really want to rewrite those charts.

Once our humid weather goes away  – hopefully Wed – I can block and finish.

    Ooohh, I just L00VE Faroese shawls!
    I have my fingers crossed that I will one day work up enough courage to knit one.
    Congratulations on your finishing!
    Blocking is the very end of the downhill slide to the end.
    Happy knitting,
    Janey
