So its finally finished. The knitting was actually finished several days ago. I just had to finally get around to blocking her. Looking back on the project I'm proud. I'm proud that I finished it. There was more than one occassion when I wanted to quit. The first clue was the hardest for me. And took so much concentrations. I think this project made me grow as a knitter. I learned a lot, while still having fun. Now on to the pictures!
First a bath:

And here we are all pinned out. blocking with the aid of Carly's blocking wires. Thank you so much Carly. We started out attempting to block this without wires and wow! So glad I have knitting friends to bum tools off of.

Now to just let the pictures speak for themself.

Pattern: "Swan Lake / Mystery Stole 3 by Melanie Gibbons"
Yarn: Knit Picks Bare - Merino Wool Lace Weight. I used one (880yards 100g) with 16.3g leftover.
needles:3.25mm (us 3)
started: sometime in Dec. After Justin got home from deployment. Not sure what day.
finished July 5

woo-hoo! Thanks for letting me help out! I had a good time. Blocking isn't as scary as I thought it would be, but the results are amazing! Hopefully Carly will loan me her wires when it's my turn. I'm going to finish clue 4 tonight and print off 5 as soon as possible. Congratulations!
