blueberries on a six-string Sigma Here is the Knitpicks Bare merino/silk, reblocked to a smooth edge. This is the smaller version Water Turtles shawl, 24″ long laid flat, about 27″ long on, 880 yards/200 g, with 16 g left over, dyed in Jacquard Acid in less-than-full-strength Navy.

After I finished it, I picked up the long-neglected purple Maple Creek Farm merino/bamboo shawl that I’d started during the weekend of my son’s wedding–it kept getting put aside for projects that needed to be fast-tracked, but it was so close to being done.  I decided, just spend one single day and let it be done.  I’d forgotten which pattern I’d been knitting it in…

Smaller version Water Turtles. Huh. Well, it might make for slightly repetitive knitblogging, but whatchagonnado.  I knitted it down to the very last five grams, and it’s ready to block too.

Love the shawl! The blue is such a pretty color & the shape looks like it would swirl beautifully if the wearer twirled around and around.

Repetitive knitblogging?? Come on in; the readin’s fine!! 😉

Oh, I wish! Nope, we don’t own a Jeppson guitar yet. You should see Bryan’s handiwork–it’s incredible.

I have to agree with so many of the comments! Great guitar model, and the way you churn out lace so quickly makes me think elves or magical mice are involved while the rest of the world sleeps. BTW, loved the Carhenge link a bit back. I went to both Stonehenge and Callanish and would get a kick out of this.
