Auspicious Beginning

I finally finished my Ene's Scarf on New Year's Day night. I seem to have been the victim of reverse, reverse psychology on this one. I was SO sure beginning with many stitches and working my way down to few would go faster than working few to many. I expected it to practically knit itself, but au contraire - it seemed to go on forever. However, done it is! Soon it will be on its way to a most special woman, a second mom to me, and one of my first knitting mentors.

That is so beautiful, I'd have a hard time giving it away (but then, I have a hard time knitting lace).

For me also, Ene was the NEVERENDING project. By the time I bound off, I was so sick of it. That wore off, of course, after blocking. Congrats on finishing.

It's wonderful. I've frogged so many lace attempts, and that is one GORGEOUS shawl.
