First finished object of 2009

The shawl is complete! Well, it isn't technically a shawl, the pattern calls it a "triangular scarf," but by whatever name, its good to know that I can finish something, even if it is a knitting project. Lately it seems like everything takes so long to finish, articles take a year before they are in print, classes aren't finished being prepped until the time the class meets, research is ongoing etc. etc. etc. I need some smaller projects in my life.

Maybe this finishing power will be transferred onto some of my writing projects now. I can't wait to give the finished object to the recipient! This is my first lace project and I'm really happy with the results. The pattern was a lot of fun to make. I may make one of these for myself soon.
