Permit me a moment of exuberance*:
This is my LAST YARN ALONG AS A SINGLE WOMAN!
So it is only fitting that I blocked my wedding shawl last night, just in time for this post.
(In other words, if your name is Keith and you are reading this, I recommend that you stop. Although Keith has confessed that whenever he sees a blog post of mine about yarn or knitting, he doesn't really read it anyway.)
Blocking is the only knitting-related thing I've been doing lately; everything is off the needles. Which is a good thing. It is a cloudy day here, but I managed to enlist my dad to snap a few photos.
I was a little worried about the color, because when I soaked it last night the water turned bright blue. I absolutely loved working with sweetgeorgia yarn, and the colors are delicious, but now you and I know, dear reader--they bleed. (At least, the colorway "Riptide" bleeds.)
However, the yarn itself seems to have retained its vibrant color. It's greener than in these photos, a beautiful rich teal color. Some of the photos on my Ravely page show it better.
(Edited to add: aren't the nupps BEAUTIFUL? I am so glad I did them! Yippee!)
And yes, I will hopefully upload photos of me wearing it in my wedding dress.
I may not post much til then--nor read, nor knit.
I am getting married!!
*I always thought that exuberance ought to be spelled with an 'h' in it, and for a while did so, to the chagrin of Word's spellchecker.
