So That Happened
The Knitalong shawl that I color-teased you with before is finished and blocked:
Unless you enjoy sticking dozens of pins into things, don't ever put a picot edge on anything. I am loathe to block things, but this just had to be done. The colors look much better than they did as I was working with them. The pattern called for beads to be placed along the edging; that seemed a little too gilding-the-lily to me. There's enough going on with the colors and the patterns as it is.
Darling Hugh won a Golden Globe for "The Night Manager," and his acceptance killed (as almost anything he says is wont to do):
The benevolent kmkat sent a box chock-full of squares for Blankapalooza.
Thank you again and again, Kathryn! There has been some seaming going on, I promise you, but not enough --- or, at least, not enough that I'm satisfied with --- to show here just yet. Pictures will come, though. Rest assured.
