Over the weekend my wrists got better and I did a little knitting (3 – 5 rows) to exercise my hands. Yesterday the braces came off and my wrists were A-OK again, Yea!! I don’t quite know what happened, but what the heck. I got to work and finished up the Drachenfels shawl.
This shawl has been going on for awhile. Instead of posting all the pictures again I thought that I would give the links here in case anyone wants to look back at my Drachenfels’ baby pictures.

The shawl needs some blocking but since it is so big I’m not going to wet block it. Besides, I am just dying to wear it and who wants to wait that long? I’m just going to hit it with some steam, smooth it out a little, and put this yummy baby to work.
I’m off to wind some yarn. Must knit more!!

I am so happy with this one. Thank you!
The shawl turned out great and I love the color combination !
By the way, your blog has been so inspiring to me since I started blogging that I would like to nominate you for a Sunshine Award! You will find more details on my latest post called Sunshine Award 😉
Wow! I am so flattered. Thank you very much. I’m off to read your latest post. 😃
Wow! I live the pattern anyway and yours is gorgeous!
Thanks. I was worried about the contrast but it came out.
Very pleased your wrists are up to it again
I am so happy to hear that your wrists are better 🙂 Your shawl is gorgeous, it just looks so cosy and the edging is beautiful. x
I’m still babying them but they are better. Yea!
It is just a wonderful. Since it is knitted on the bias it wraps and stays on just wonderfully. Would you believe that the designer contacted me last night to ask if she could Instagram the pictures? I’m just blown away! Just goes to show it is good to take a nice picture. 🙂
Beautiful! I need to make this!
It is really easy and comfy. I think it will be a work horse for me which is why I went with muted colors.
It looks awesome! I’m so glad you were able to finish it!!
Me too. It us getting colder tomorrow so I will be wearing it when I go out on errands. 🙂
