Yep, you read that right. My Holden by the Sea is officially a Finished Object! Granted, I had to abandon the idea of the picot edging the pattern called for because there was just no way I had enough yarn left for that, but bind off happened with a bit of a tail to spare. Go me! It’s still a gorgeous shawl and I can’t wait to see how it blossoms when I go to block it. That will have to wait a little longer, however, as I prefer doing that sort of thing when the weather warms up so it doesn’t take forever and a day to dry. Then again, I might get impatient and do it anyway, we’ll see.
I’ll be the first to admit mistakes were made while knitting this, but I love it anyway. I doubt anyone’d really know or care unless they looked closely and were knitters themselves.
So now it’s on to the next project. I know I still need to work on my cross stitch bears, and I may do that, but I’m kind of wanting to do a little project with a more geeky feel to it. Something for hubby, maybe, since he’s into gaming. Shh, don’t tell him 😉
Have you made anything geek-tastic?
