El Centésimo

For those of you that do not know, this is my 100th post. No, I am not starting up a contest or doing anything else to celebrate (that will be next month, if I am still able to. Stay tuned!).

As promised, here are some glamour shots of the finished shawl:

It is absolutely beautiful! The colors are right up my ally: bright, obnoxious, and full of color! Perfect for brisk Fall days or windy spring nights. And even though there are a bunch of holes in this shawl, I tried to wear it this past Sunday while I was knitting inside and it got me too hot!

Now that the shawl is done, I have started the bag:

I'm half way through the first intarsia repeat and my yarn is depleating rapidly. I'm not worried about yarn, though, because this is a stash buster, so it is all good! Honestly, I can't wait to get the knitting done on this baby so that I could felt it and turn it into something useful. I don't felt much because I do not have a personal washer and dryer (aka, I have to pay for each load I put in), but for this bag (which hopefully would be done by this fall) I'm willing to break some rules.

That's all for now. I got a lot to do today and unfortunately, it does not involve knitting.

Wow, that shawl looks fantastic. Such great colours. And the bad looks brill too. I love the bright things. I will definitely try to buy brighter colours in future.

girl, the shot with you and the shawl must become a greeting card! All the colors are beautiful! It can be your signature gift card or something.

You should also print some moo cards. You can get those over on flickr.com
