The Staggered Shawl is totally finished, all the ends have been woven in. I threw it in the washing machine, (bamboo pop is machine washable) I did put it in a lingerie bag first. I was a little worried that it was smaller then I expected but my fears were groundless. Once I took it out of the machine, gave it a shake and blocked it, the shawl reached the desired dimensions. I am very happy with the result. The Bamboo Pop is smooth to the touch and the shawl is large enough to provide coverage but not hot.
The pattern called for three balls, each in a different color. I used all of the blue but I have enough of the black and pink left that I can probably squeeze out a baby sweater or something equally small.
My socks are finished!!! I love knitting socks but in order to curb my rampant startitis I have a rule that I can only have one pair of socks on the needles at any point in time. These were such fun because I did a fancy rib and knit them so the design was visible when the cuff was turned down. I like low, cuffed socks. And I love how socks can be easily customized to ones own feet.
I am already swatching for the next pair of socks, but this time I think I will knit them for someone else.
