Tokyo Shawl | Home Stretch.

...I was tempted to simply share the photos, but dinner is in the slow cooker and I spent all afternoon knitting. So you get a few words, too.
It's been months since you've seen Tokyo all spread out, so I figured that was a good place to start. I'm delighted to see that it's going to be BIG. Not only wide, but also long.  

I've since finished that gray band and below are the remaining colors (not in order, sorry). It feels pretty great to finish a band, break the yarn and know I won't be using it again. Also, to know there are only four more bands (three wide and one narrow) and then a four-row garter edge.

I'm saying it now - this piece is going to be done for Christmas! (maybe even Christmas Eve).

...and as I type this, I realize how nice it is to not be knitting holiday gifts like a crazy person. Maybe my new tradition will be an epic project for me to wear for the holidays!

I also realize it's been ages since I shared anything here about knitting plans. You know I have them. Just need them to stay still long enough so I can capture them in words.

Do you have something special planned to knit after the holidays?

I am hoping that I will FINALLY actually work on a Brooklyn Tweed sweater I have started several times and frogged several times. I am not optimistic.
In the meantime, Merry Christmas to you and yours!

It's gorgeous! And what a beautiful backdrop of colorful yarn! I'm hoping to expand my knitting skills in 2016...that could be bad for my budget, as I tend to go a little crazy around yarn. :)

It is spectacular already, and a great backdrop, full of knitting promise :). Not being stressed around Christmas sounds like a good plan!

That is going to be a beautiful shawl! I am very tempted to order a kit for a new project for the new year!

All I want is to finish the stuff I've been working on forever by the end of the year. Let's hope I can do it!

I was hoping I'd have crisp done for at least new years, but don't think it'll happen. Like Carole-I'd like to just get everything off the needles soon, so I can reload them!

Oh, WOW, Mary. That is just gorgeous! I love those colors together. I have this never-ending slog of a sweater I'm working on (although not very quickly) that I would like to finish before spring. My knitting seems to have slowed to a snail's pace. . .

What a beautiful shawl! Should keep you nice and cozy warm. One of these days I need to try some Isager yarn.
