As mentioned previously I told Elise I'd knit her a scarf, and then negotiated her into a shawl. I really love long, thin crescent shaped shawls, I find them so easy to wear and fun. I finished knitting Magrathea last Sunday, blocked it on Tuesday and rather forgot about it until Elise came over yesterday and reminded me that I had something for her. I told her she could only have it if she let me take pictures.
Elise doesn't love having pictures of herself taken. But she was a good sport for this.
I love the way this came out, I love the way it suits Elise. When she came back over last night for dinner, she was still wearing it. Hadn't taken it off.
