I can too finish things...

It's my first finished object of 2007!

Charlotte's Web Shawl
Yarn: Noro Iro (2 skeins)
Needles: Boye Needle Master circulars, size 9 and a Boye crochet hook for the edge

I really like how it came out. As I hoped, it grew a bit after getting soaked and pinned out. I only had enough yarn for one row of the edging, but I think it looks nice, especially for my first functional crochet!

I finally got around to felting the shibori scarf:
Pretty funky, huh? I wish I had used more rubber bands, to maximize funkiness. Next time, definitely more bubbles and maybe I'll try doing something to the edge so it won't curl so much. But the scarf is still surprisingly soft, considering it's felted.

As usual fabulous projects. I finished my DD1's expected bundle's first afghan. Yahoo. And I will finish the pray shawl for the Lone Star State Knitters January FO's Contest soon, LOL.
