Quickie FO

I needed to do something after finishing Hillary's scarf on Friday, and my order from Little Knits arrived, so I decided to go with that. I had gotten 2 balls of Noro Blossom in the red/fuschia mix, and hadn't decided what to do with it yet. I was flipping through some patterns that I had printed, and I came across the Bloom shawl from the Fall issue of Knitty. It called for 5 skeins of Blossom, so I ordered 3 more hanks from Little Knits in the same color. I started this Friday night, and finished it a few minutes ago:
The colors are a little hard to see on the blocking board (my new one - yay!), but it is really pretty. The Noro striping works wonderfully in this pattern (as intended). Kris keeps oohing and aahing at it. (And yes, I know that there are a couple of ends still to be woven in.)

Now I just have to wait for it to dry. Which is why it is propped up in my craft room with a fan pointed at it. =) Modeled pics will follow when it is dry, hopefully tomorrow.

I can't wait to see it modeled! I recently finished a Bloom done in Kureyon and I've really been enjoying it so far. Don't you just love the short rows? That pattern was fun, I'm thinking of doing another one for a friend.
