Tulip Wedge Shawl sort of finished

I’ve been working on this for a few months. It’s the Tulip Wedge Shawl, designed by JC Briar, from INKnitters Winter 2004. (I don’t see tulips there, but it’s beautiful anyways.) I finished the knitting last night. Hooray! 10 rows of seed stitch on about 50,000 stitches at the bottom drove me a little nuts…

Of course, my photo colors are all messed up. The yarn is actually black. I used JaggerSpun Zephyr, which is 50/50 Tussah silk/Merino wool. It’s very soft and reasonably priced. You can see in the top left corner of this photo that I got the first repeat backwards on that side, oops! The shawl will blend in with my black stuff so it shouldn’t be noticed. Right now it’s all balled up in a bag, and when it’s blocked it will be less mushy and more shiny…
