The close-ups are a bit better:
Those nupps (rhymes with "soups") really pop out when blocked, don't they. And the edging is my favorite:
Pattern: Greta Garbo Shawl Kit from the Wooly West
Yarn: Nordic Lites in Linganberry
Needles: size 5
Size: around 60" across the top and 30" down the middle
She's a bit smaller than she was supposed to be. I should have gotten a third skein of yarn and moved up a needle size, but she's okay, I guess. I'm 5'7", so I like my shawls to be a little on the big side.
I've been working on the Kimono Top. It's coming along. It adds to speed when half the stitches on each RS row are slipped instead of knitted. I've been working on some other stuff, so I'm not further along. I'll tell you what my kitchen smells like and maybe you'll excuse the slack knitting - freshly baked bread and geranium oil. The bread smell is sort of obvious, but as for the geranium oil, I made up some wonderfully fragranced face cream yesterday with almond, jojoba and rose hip oils, beeswax, and lavender and rose geranium essential oils. It's really nice and my skin feels nice and soft.
