Blocking done and items shipped

Thanks to all, especially Tallguy, for your support during my blocking ordeal. Everything turned out beautifully.

Unforunately, I was exhausted and only able to get this one blurry picture off before passing out cold, and my wife wrapping everything up. I don't think you can really tell, but there are 3 Irish Hiking Scarves, 1 Liesel scarf, 1 Wisp (from Knitty), 1 Faux Spanish Lace shawl, 1 big red shawl with a zig-zag lace pattern, and 2 One-Row Handspun Scarves (from Yarn Harlot), although neither of those was actually done with anything handspun. I'm including a request for a picture of the recipient modeling his or her gift with each present, so hopefully someone with better camera skills than I have will provide me with something further to post.

Now, only four more to go by New Year's, and I'll finally have everything done!

Wow, everything looks great! How long did it take to make all those?

Cripes! You give new meaning to the term "knitting machine". Lovely work.

Veni, vidi, kniti.

Thank you both. I don't know about a "knitting machine", as I've had at least one project, and usually much more than that, on the needles since July. So I don't get quite so rushed at the end again, I think I'll start next Christmas now!

The only real downside is that with so many projects going at once, I didn't take part in either of the scarf exchanges, and should there be a third one, I may be tired of knitting scarves, as cool as the exchanges have seemed to be. Boo!

Goodness! You have been busy! Everything looks wonderful.

An impressive body of work. I am honoured that there is a "faux Spanish" in the mix, and hope the recipient adores it.
