MeerMeer from Ravelry is one of the amazing test knitters who are knitting up my Walnut Grove shawl pattern. She completed hers!! She did a fabulous job!!
These are the pics she took of it after blocking! There are about 10 test knitters working hard on this shawl, a few are doing some mods that I will include in the pattern. I'm also working on a sample myself. To see MeerMeer's completed Walnut Grove was thrilling! The knitters who volunteered to test knit for me are just wonderful! They have been very constructive and have provided terrific feedback for me. I'm so lucky to have 10 additional pair of eyes give me their perspectives on my pattern. It's just so incredibly helpful, I can't even tell you!!!
In other news..
I went to my doc's office today and was relieved to discover that the 4 inch diameter inflammation around the flu shot injection site is just a bad allergic reaction to the flu shot. I have to continue Benadryl, Ibuprofen, and ice for the next couple of days. Meanwhile, I'm stuck with flu and allergy symptoms. Hubster and DD are sick with the actual flu as well. :( Needless to say, I haven't felt good enough to pick up any knitting or reading in the last couple of days. So those of you looking for reviews, please be patient. I'm going to rest and take care of the fam for the next day or two and then life will go back to normal. :)
