Done and Dusted...and Modeled!

So I did get this shawl soaked and blocked and dried in time to wear it out for dinner last night.  First up, here's a picture of it blocking:

It was BIG...ended up 80" x 45".

And here's how it looked when I wore it:

And the back view:
Glad this one is finally finished, but I feel a little bereft!  Of course, I do have the pullover I'm working on, plus another shawl that's underway...

We took a 2-hour walk today up into Mountain View Cemetery at the top of Piedmont Avenue.  This is the cemetery that was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park.  It was a glorious summer day and I took zillions of pics.  I think they will deserve a separate post.

As Yarnivorous Lynne would say...anon!

Gorgeous! I know what you mean about feeling bereft--a project like this one is a constant companion for quite a while.
