My Antarktis is done, blocked and photographed! A minor miracle considering I am also nursing a bottomless pit who gains 2 oz a day and keeping my house (somewhat) clean.
Pattern: Antarktis by Janina Kallio
Yarn: KnitCircus Trampoline in the Needle in a Haystack impressionist gradient
Needles: US 7
I tried to use my blocking wires from Christmas and I confess that I was rushing due to crying children. So this is not blocked the best. But I got the eyelets to open up just a enough and got the shawl to a nice wearable size.
I really liked this pattern. It was well written and the different sections really broke it up into manageable pieces. And the stitch counts REALLY helped this sleep deprived momma make sure she was not veering off course to far. I found myself reaching for this project every time I had a free moment or two. And the rows really never got so long that they were interminable.
I really have the shawl itch and I need to cast on some sort of garter gorgeousness to fill this project hole that just opened up!
