    Late Breaking News!

    SAN DIEGO, CA; 6:20 PM PDT -

    We interrupt our regularly scheduled Socktoberfest coverage to bring you this late breaking news! The Peacock Feathers Shawl, last seen in this state of great uncompletion rife with errors, has returned to the land of the living (as in, living knitting projects). After completing a 5th cross-country sojourn this past weekend, the knitting on this shawl is actually finished. Yes, finished! (Tantalizing teaser photo that offers no proof of the above claim.) All that remains is some sort of crochet bind-off which the knitter needs to examine more closely after a good night's sleep.

    Shocked? Astounded? Tune in tomorrow for the updates as we follow this incredibly negligent Amazing Lace team on their final legs.

    I hate to pick nits (not really, or I wouldn't) but doesn't binding off have to occur for an item to be technically finished? ;-}

    Seriously, I'm sure it's beautiful! And certainly well traveled.

    Yea! I can't wait to see it in all of it's finished glory! (And so I can drool over it since I can't wait to make one too!)

    Oh, awesome! Can't wait to see it blocked and finished, yes, after a good night's sleep.

    Incredibly negligent team - niche marketing! Go IN team! lol.

    I must admit I had no idea you hadn't finished this until you mentioned it the other day. I also seem to recall that you weren't crazy about the color when you were knitting it. I hope you've either changed your mind our found the perfect gift recipient!

    The crochet bind off on this is a piece of cake and goes very quickly. Can't wait to see the finished article. I've knitted it twice and will probably do it again in the future - it's a great pattern!

    Negligent would suggest that you owed some duty to your lace - I don't know if I'm ready for that kind of relationship with my knitting!

    Can't wait to see the WHOLE thing, as opposed to the darn teaser!
