Frantic Holiday Crafting: Finish 1

declared my intent to finish a project every 2 days during December on Sunday, and here is my first finish.


Crescent shawl blog


I knit up a simple crescent shaped shawl for my sister using a skein of Twizzle that Mountain Colors sent me for review.  (Review spoiler alert: I love it so far!)  I could have finished the shawl with just one skein, but I was so engrossed in the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead that I didn’t realize how close I was to the end of the skein until I was on the last row.  I didn’t want to rip back, so I just cast off with the other skein.  Lucky for me, the colors coordinate beautifully.

This took 4 days to make, but I hadn’t started my challenge yet so I’m feeling super accomplished right now.  Oh, and I never said that finishing a project would include the blocking – hence my sneaky picture of the center.  (The edges are not ready for prime time currently.)

Now which project should I take up today?
