finished feathers

work has been....busy. today was the second saturday in a row i went in for a half-day. i keep telling myself it's yarn money...but it's definitely taking away from my knitting time.

however...irtfa'a is at last complete! it's been finished for over a week, and i've even had pictures...but...i've been a bit lazy lately.

the edging:

DSCN2024
pattern: irtfa'a by anne hanson
yarn: blue moon fiber arts laci, colorway 'korppi'
needles: size us 2 (2.75mm) and us 1 & 00 (2.25 & 1.75 mm) for the edging (not only do i knit loosely, but i got a different gauge for the pearl-based and knit-based halves of the edging)

other than a few nuisance p2togtbl's i rather enjoyed this shawl. even if a pair of gloves got in the way!

That's really lovely and I like the looser edging. Nice background too.
