Off the Needles!

Finally, a finished object!

Icarus is off the needles. I would post a picture, but I have to do a couple of minor repairs and block it first. The minor repairs? Well, when I finished the cast off (all 500 plus stitches), I held it up to show John and discovered two small holes. They're not dropped stitches; they're holes. With broken yarn. Two of them. To say I was horrified would be an understatement. I will repair the holes as best I can and then carefully block the shawl.

Only then will I take pictures of it. It IS, incidentally, beautiful. Except for two small holes.

Do not even suggest that they might be moth holes. I don't want to hear it!


  1. I can't wait to see it! I hope that you don't have moths! (gasp!)That is every stasher's worst fear...oh the horror!

  2. On the other hand, some yarns are just like that and have unintentional thin spots here and there that don't show up until vigorous blocking occurs.

    Crossing fingers that your stash is clean :)
