Finished Kiri!

It's dark and grey outside and I haven't done much knitting yet, though I did all my laundry and cleaned up the yarn room, so that counts for extra, right?

I finished up the Kiri shawl last night as intended while watching "The Cider House Rules" which was in premiere just before the broadcasting of the Oscars, but I didn't watch the last. Did like the movie though! My first real blocking experience followed this morning (I would have done it last night if I didn't need the bed in which both me and the boyfriend were laying! :D). So here are the pictures:

It's smaller then I had anticipated, or thought. I don't know why I was thinking this shawl was going to be bigger. But hey it's more then ok and I'm really happy with my first real lace project!!

Yarn : 100% mohair on cone
Needles : 4.0mm addi turbos
Start date : Febr. 10 2006
End date : March 5 2006
Pattern : Kiri

I'm really pleased with myself, though I'm a week late for the knitting olympics. Still, I finished this shawl and I'm so happy!

Now I need to apologize to Jenn because I forgot to mention the following item which was also in the drillbox :

A set of Brittany needles, DPN's 5" in 2.75mm! I'm so excited about these as this size is not available over here, so it'll be put to good use! I'm also excited about my first set of wooden needles! Well, I did have a addi turbo natura, but it's not the same I think!

Thank you so much dear!!

So that's it for today, off to do some more knitting!

Beautiful shawl! And the Brittany dpns are the best :O) When I knit socks and mittens on dpns it is always with the 5" Brittany's...the longer needles get in my way. Enjoy!

I am so glad that you liked everything! I knit all my socks on the short needles too. I Love them!
