Look! Finished objects!

I’ve been away a lot this spring, but I’ve not been idle. Well, not completely idle. In addition to a bout of castonitis*, I’ve made some more squares for the Mawata Colossus:

Each of these counts as a finished object, right? I’m not sure how these will go together yet, but I don’t have to decide that right now.

I finally blocked Semele:

Why did it take me so long to block this? I do not know. It wasn’t nearly as difficult as I’d expected.
I love this bit. That Åsa Tricosa knows a thing or two about design, I tell you what.

and Zelda, which when last seen looked like this:

Almost a shawl
Almost a shawl

is all finished, and written up, and tested, and with the indispensable Kate for layout and editing. With the help of some friends, I’m going to get this thing photographed today. As soon as I’m sufficiently caffeinated.

*castonitis: A disease common to knitters. Symptoms include selective blindness, unrealistic expectations, and short attention span, leading to the urge to cast on eleventy projects in quick succession.

  1. ‘Castonitis’ – just diagnosed myself. Definitely suffering from it… well, at least after a few rows have been knit, the yarns for the project can no longer be said to be sitting in stash, so I may get new ones, right?
    Maybe I’ll find a self-help group somewhere… 🙂

    1. Exactly! We can’t have empty space in the stash bins — the yarn might go bad. I’m thinking of doing a major frog-or-finish session for the Ravelry-event-that-takes-place-during-the-Olympics, whatever it’s to be called.

    Wow. That shawl is incredibly lovely. I exclaimed out loud just to look. Breathtaking.

    1. Thank you thank you! Even I was astonished by how lovely it looked once it was all blocked out. Åsa designs such beautiful things.
