And a new edition of the SKK today ;)
I finished the snowdrop shawl in nine days including blocking the whole thing (on my guest bed - I was quite surprised how well it worked). I have to say it was great fun and even though I have no clear idea what I ever gonna do with those kind of shawls I know I'm going to make more. It's quite addictive.
And it turned out pretty pretty too (even though the photos didn't so much as I had to make them in the hotel room in Dresden)
(urgh, sorry about that carpet ...)
It ended up to be 2 m wide (6ft 8, if I'm not mistaken) and 1.2 m (4ft) from tip to neck line.
I did follow the pattern for most parts, but I did add little golden beads on the tip of each point (which are not really visible in the photo)
Hmmm, if I don't wear it, I still can use it as home decoration ...
One extra picture from my neighbors. After some intense study (looking it up in wikipedia) I'm convinced now that it's a pair of kestrels (Turmfalken in German)
(my parents thought it's an eagle-owl (Uhu), but look at that face. It's not even close)
I'll packed my bags and after a fairly short night I'll be off for a week of San Fransisco tomorrow morning - for work, but still, hey, it's SF!!!
