Irish Diamond Shawl Progress Report #8

Soo so close and getting closer every day I work on it. I was asked "How happy are you?". In response I said it is like a real good book, can't wait to complete it but sad to when it ends.

I've got about 17 rows to go with over 700 stitches per row. Not a lot in the grand scheme but several days still...

Keeping this short, wait for the final stitch and a pic before blocking.

Til next time


P.S. Finished ball #7 last night and will probably have 2 of my 10 balls left over.

Love the texture you are getting.

"but sad too when it ends."

That's so true - I think of it as postpartum depression.

It's looking really good though, really good.


Beautiful texture, nice pattern, excellent color choice. Nicely done sir, nicely done!

I feel that way coming to the end of a project too, but the blocking, especially w/a shawl makes it exciting. Once I put the shawl in for a soak I can hardly wait to get it squeezed out and blocked. Then, waiting for it to dry...I feel like a kid on a long car trip, "Is it dry yet? Is it dry yet? How close to dry is it?" Fortunate that I only have myself to drive crazy w/that question though.

Looking forward to pictures of the blocked and finished shawl!

"but sad too when it ends."

The thing to do is always start another project before this one ends. Hell, have 3, 4 or more going at the same time!!

Hmmm, you'd better frog back to row 12- I spotted a mistake.
