The First Reveal


Step 1 Done—every row knit and every stitch bound off. Unfinished, unpainted and unblocked—but still in a way, DONE.

All but a few yards--more than 5, less than 10 yard of the skein knit.  So lets say, 2240 yards of the 2250 knit, and 10 yards left over.

WOW! 

 It looks wonderful... but it can only look better!

PS--
I'll knit the sample for test painting out some other merino—a bit heavier.   --sock weight--I can't be 100% sure both yarns will take up the dye/paint the same.. (but I can test that on the few remaining yards).

Congrats on binding off your shawl before the wedding. I can't wait to see it after it is painted and block.

Amazing how it worked out, with so little left over. It's a very beautiful wedding shawl design. This is the one that you are going to paint. It will be gorgeous!

Fabulous. You must feel elated, delighted, relieved - a myriad of emotions. Such an achievement.
