USA wins Group

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! The shawl is done!!!!!! It took almost exactly two months to finish from cast on to final blocking. The final bead count was roughly 9,500 ^_^. And, and my picture of the shawl is now featured on Ravelry, which I am sooooo very excited about.

I won't be able to gift my cousin with it until I head to my parents from my birthday next month, but I figure that gives me plenty of time to show it off to absolutely everyone I know :)

I have been in a finishing mood as of late, which I know means I need to work on projects as fast as possible before it packs its bags for greener pastures. Of course the thing I want to finish the most I don't have anymore yarn for. Thankfully I just need one more skein of Bristol in black, which is very easy to find, but now I must throw myself on the tender mercies of the post office. Move faster damn it!

I could also justify starting two other shawls, one because I'm being paid for it (not a lot but whatever) and the other because...well its new yarn and a cool pattern. Except in both cases I need a size 7 circular needle.....WHICH I DON'T HAVE! So again I am waiting for things to arrive in the mail. *sigh* I love knit picks needles and they are cheap, which is a really good thing right now, but really if it weren't for the money I would have just gone out and bought an Addi needle (stupid job, start paying regularly again *kick*). So instead I'm working on these for M:
