FO: Seraphim shawl

Seraphim's done! Did the cast off with a needle 2 sizes up since I tend to cast off tightly. I tried this on when I got it off the needle, and I thought it was small. Then I stuck it in water and it got huge! It spread over my regular blocking towel and needed three more towels and almost all of my pins.

Seraphim shawl, blocking.

Seraphim has been such a fun knit, I can't wait to wear it. The pattern was great, I learned how to knit from charts, the yarn is pretty, I like everything about it.

Swatched and cast on for the Boudica socks on Thursday. The horizontal braids at the cuff look like an interesting challenge and it's a different toe than I've done before.
