A finished shawl and a new wheel

I finally finished the endless Aeolian cast off this evening...
Aeolian Wedding Shawl
I will block this later in the week - at the moment I am loving the ruffles on the edging! Finished, with 25 days left to go - what is going on?

In other news, the Ashford Kiwi has now left the house, and has been replaced by this:
My new wheel
An Edammertje, on loan from Rachel. Tony assembled it last night and with a little TLC got it working this evening. It is quite different to the Kiwi - harder to treddle and bobbin lead - but I'll get used to it!

Looks lovely! (Shawl, that is). Blocking pics please - want to see that magic happening!

And the wheel - I spent last Sat at a spindling workshop; uh-oh, could be a new obsession!

It's lovely, looks fantastic before it's blocked! I think it's good that you've finished this already, you can just play around with stress free knitting until the big day now.

Wow, the shawl looks wonderful. And less than four weeks to the wedding! I can't wait to see the photos.

Oh Ruth - your shawl is just beautiful :-) I can't wait to see it blocked!

The Ashford Kiwi is still sat in the corner of my study where we left it. It prompted one or two incredulous questions from DS mind you ;-)
