As in, about blooming time. Yes, I have finished the lily of the valley border on my swallowtail shawl. Hooray!! I did get a bit held up there about halfway through the first repeat and lost some of my motivation but the desire to get on with some other things in my queue and my commitment to the knit list (can't start any other project knitting until this is done) pushed me along.
I had also misunderstood how many rows of the lily of the valley border I would need to knit That was very discouraging because I thought that I was only some 30 per cent of the way through when I was really 60 per cent of the way - phew! And now with the border done I am a smidge more than 80 per cent of the way through.
I can't wait to block this out and see what it looks like when it's all evenly stretched out. And those nupps: I tell you what, I'm nupped.
Also as in, it's blooming time out there in the garden. Yes, spring is sprung (although we are still getting some snow).
