Irtfa'a is done!
First, blocking shots and then the reveal below.
This thing is huge. I haven't measured it, but it's definitely larger than my wingspan (which is probably 5'--I have short arms for my height).
Blocking it was quite an undertaking; as you can see in the full shot, I ran out of room on the sheet and had to add an emergency pillowcase. My housemates were very impressed.
And here it is: the main event.
Pattern: Irtfa'a by Anne Hanson, who kicks seventeen kinds of major ass.
Yarn: Posh Yarn Cecilia in "Onyx" (50/50 cashmere/silk, sadly discontinued). This is my favorite shot, which coincidentally mimics Anne's cover photo.
And I think this is my new ravatar.
This was such a huge undertaking, but it was completely worth it. Now I think I'm going to knit something a little smaller.
