kiri finished

kiri finished 003
(i tried to get as little gratuitous ninja in as possible for those with sensitive consititutions)

kiri finished 005
(pretty good representation of the color in the front of photo. also, yay for how long my hair has gotten in the past year!)

these are both pre-blocking for reasons outlined below.

project: all tangled up's kiri (pdf file)
started: 12/10/05
started again: 12/11/05
finished: (blocking to be done sometime this week) 12/18/05
yarn: knitpicks palette (2 stranded fingering weight peruvian wool) in fog
needles: addi turbo natura's 4mm (US6) 40" circs
for: me mama
notes: i did 11 repeats of the pattern. or 131 rows, minus the edging.

it's done (except blocking, of course) and about 56" across, 29" to the point.


when i block it it will be approximately the size of canada.

my question is now thus: block it here (where i don't have proper dog-free surfaces, although could buy a sheet of tyvek and stick it in the storage closet) or block it at home where it'd not be a christmas surprise, but more likely dog-free? the answer is two. or b. whatever. not here.

(sorry 'bout the crappy pic, it's a lighting issue. the stuff on the right consists of my floofy knitting bag, the pattern. the poster above is from the paul simon/bob dylan tour of 99, and the blue sphere is a dog toy that was confiscated as the dog was being a pain)

updated: i got jealous of yahaira's lovely ella shots and re-took them. it's hard to take pictures of shawls that you're wearing with no photographer other than yourself.

that's beautiful! and not a ninja in sight (to the disappointment of many)!

I favor overturning the constitutional right to knit.

if you favor that, then the terrorists have won.

You know what would make that sweater better?

Ninjas.

Sorry if that made no sense...I've had too much kofxvi today.

that'g going to be huge and lovely after blocking!
I don't have an extra mattress that everyone else seems to have, so I wash it in the sink and place a towel on my dining table to let it dry there. It dries pretty fast since it's thin.
