YES, I am experiencing the effects of knitting - as an outlet for my creativity, my obsession with colour and my love for beautiful yarns. NO, not in a negative way, but as in the German word "stricken", i.e. knitting!

It needs a good spa....uh, blocking
My alpaca Flower Basket Shawl is finished. I used almost all of the 250g of yarn I had, I even thought of weighing it before the second last repeat to find out when to knit the edge. It worked out beautifully, I have only a little ball of yarn left over.
No, one can't see the lace pattern before blocking. If nothing else, this picture is proof.
