Almost Done!

Usually I'm such a terrible procrastinator, that I'm up 'til 4am the night before finishing gifts. That's why I'm so proud of myself for finishing my Mother's Day gift early! This is my first completed lace project, and I loved it! The Swallowtail Shawl took less than a week. I used 3 balls + a little from a 4th (2/3 of the BO row) of Elann Baby Silk, and 3.5mm Inox circulars.

I tried the string method of blocking. It was quite tough since I had a 4 yr old pulling one corner, and a 6 yr old pulling the other. I think it's going to turn out okay, though:



I think I will try to find a set of blocking wires before I complete the Sea Silk scarf.

It's such a rush completing a project! Let's just pray that Mom likes it!
