OK! I’m going to finish this!
I want this finished object so much but NUTTY ME HAS DECIDED TO BEAD EVERY OTHER ROW which I think is contributing to my lack of desire to actually knit it.

I proclaimed my objective and signed up in 88 Stitches’ UFO KAL.
I’m going to break this down into manageable portions. A FULL REPEAT OF THE PATTERN EACH DAY.

Dear Shawl,

I love you. But I just have no desire to knit you at this point in time. You will continue to live on my living room coffee table, always in sight and in my heart.


MILESTONE: Finished 9 reps of main chart, I’m moving on to edging. Woot woot! 18g yarn remaining.

I’ve finished knitting it! And with 3g of yarn remaining! I may have forced myself to finish it and pulled an all nighter. I may have gone to bed at 6:19 am and promptly passed out. I can’t wait to block it! I bound off using my favorite lace BO, the yarn over bind off.

It’s finished blocking and I couldn’t be happier with it. The finished size is quite large! It’s about 114 cm across. I completely forgot to measure depth, it’s probably about 85~ cm deep. PS I also love love LOVE FREAKING LOOOVVVVVEEEEEEEEEE my blocking wires from Inspinknity. So much easier to block! And the beads, while a complete pain in the ass, really do look amazing!
