I finished the shawl I've been working on. I did not use a pattern, just made it up as I went and changing yarns whenever I felt like it. There is a variety in there... some merino, some mohair, some ribbon yarn. It is so much more relaxing when there is no pattern to follow. I have not blocked it - I have not decided if I will. I guess I ought to though it looks pretty good now! Knitting freeform feels like painting with yarn.
