Hold on to your knitting needles, friends, because I finally took photos of my finished Nightshift and today I’m sharing them with you.
You may recall that I started this project last April. And I knit and knit and then I frogged quite a lot.
I continued knitting over the summer and into the fall. I finally finished it in November but I didn’t block it until much later.
Yesterday she had her photoshoot.
The yarn is Malabrigo Rios and I used a whole bunch of colors: Frank Ochre, Illusion, Quequay, Cloud Sunshine, Glitter, Sabiduria, Playa, Lotus, Pocion, Reflecting Pool, and Living Coral. I wasn’t sure at first about all of those color changes but I actually really love it.
I knit an extra repeat (or maybe 2? I can’t recall) and it’s big. Like, really big. In some ways that makes it more wearable because it’s shaped more like a traditional shawl. Honestly, though, I’m not sure how much I’ll actually wear this. Time will tell.
For the moment, it’s across the back of the couch in our little den. It might be more useful as a lap robe!
Either way, I’m glad it’s done, I’m glad it’s blocked, I’m glad it’s photographed, and I’m glad to share it with you!
