oh my glob, it's finally done

oh my glob is finally done, which means i can tick tanis's shawl kal and the westknits summer shawl kal off my to-knit list.

i cheated a little bit, because i didn't do the final repeat of rows in the final section. i was just so tired of knitting around and around and around…and it's big enough as is, i think. i will say that odessa's tip about wrap-and-turns for that section makes it significantly easier, so if you're knitting your own lumpy space, i'd do that rather than knitting and then purling.

so here's the thing: i got really bored knitting it during the final section (clearly), but i do really like the way the construction works out, and the overall look, and the fact that any change in yarn/colour makes an entirely different shawl. like, more than a substitution normally would. and it makes me think that maybe i would like to knit another. not now - i have too many other deadlines to deal with anyway - but eventually. with maybe some blue label in jewel and lemongrass and papaya and tidal. or buttercup, or orange blossom, or lucky penny. bright colours, basically.

the deets:
pattern: lumpy space by stephen west
yarn: malabrigo sock in candombe; tanis fiber arts purple label cashmere sock in ballet slipper; juno fibre arts alice in mist; bc garn tussah tweed in 10Tt
mods: skipped the final repeat in the final section because i got tired of knitting forever and my knitting add kicked in for other projects. namely the fashion show.

you can't tell because my glasses are so dirty, but i see you...
