I forewent water, food, conversation, and sanity last night and finished up the Travel Shawl.
Yarn: Peace Fleece DK, Father's Gray, approximately 900 yards (I have about 100 yards left)
Needle: 7 US - 4.5mm
Final Blocked Size: 42 inches square
Honestly, I could block the shawl more aggressively (it probably needs to be blocked more aggressively, but I don't have the means to do it right now) and have it grow another two to three inches. However, 42 inches square is pretty big. Pre-blocked it was about 32 inches across. I used a stretchy cast-off so that I could eventually block it all to hell if I wanted to.
The cat helped immeasurably with the blocking process. She likes the shawl. She thinks the yarn smells appropriately sheepy, I believe.
sorry about the weird photos, and the closeups. Don't really have enough room in the apartment to photograph it in its entirety, and the light is strange in here in the morning.
also, I'm half asleep and haven't had any coffee yet.
