Big Blue is done. Finally. Seventeen months after casting on, tens of thousands of stitches (more? I didn't have the heart to count) and 124 grams later, the milestone shawl is off the needles. No ruffle on this version - not enough yarn and I think I like the cleaner look better. I hope to get it washed, dried and photo'd this weekend and you can bet your sweet patootie I'm wearing it to Knit Nite next weekend. For all my cashmere, this is the first cashmere shawl I've knit myself since Mark's dog chewed a hole in my favorite shawl.
