Finished Objects: Mairi Shawl

5 Aug

Somehow I finished this shawl while on vacation. I featured it in the beginning stages back on this post, and I actually blocked it when I got home this weekend, and just wove in my ends. It is done! I am really surprised at myself for being so speedy, although to be fair there was a lot of garter stitch and I had a lot of airplane time to work uninterrupted. So here she is:

While this was blocking I knitted up a quick newborn hat with the remaining scrap yarn for my good friend’s new baby boy. He posted a picture of it on baby’s head literally a few seconds after I left their house. How’s that for knit-worthy!
