Christmas Knitting is D.O.N.E.!!!

If you are my grandmother, stop reading immediately!!!!

Is she gone yet?? OK, good! Now we can talk about her present!

That's right! I finished my Christmas knitting on December 17th! I was so afraid I wasn't going to make it in time, and now look........time to spare and even mail the package! Yay me! Although, there is one tiny problem. Well, maybe not so tiny really. I was sitting in my comfy chair last night looking at the shawl and then it struck me. I thought "You know, I really probably should go on and block this thing." Yeah, well, I haven't blocked many things before and wasn't really planning to block this either so I knitted it to the size I thought it should be in the end. Yes, I hear the experienced knitters out there gasping for breath. And I also hear you laughing and snickering at me! Stop that! I'm new at this remember! So after I pinned the shawl/stole thingy out I measured it.....and it's now 81" long! Holy Moly! That thing grew nearly 15" in length. No Kidding! It's still pretty. Actually prettier now, but man is it gonna be a long one on my Mammaw who measured only 63" from fingertip to fingertip across the back! I wish I could post a picture, but you'll have to wait because she might peak. No peaking! You're not supposed to be here remember!
