That was a quick dance...

As I mentioned yesterday - Fiery Salsa is done.
 It is one of my fastest shawl knts ever. I cast on Thursday night and by Monday night it was blocking - five days. (I knit Promise Me in five days too... another gift for a departing colleague... oh - And Sweet Dreams was done in five days... but it was while I was off after Christmas... oh... and my second Magpie too...)

That said - half of Saturday and almost all of Sunday was dedicated to knitting. And Monday I cheated and used the commute home to finish up the short rows, instead of working on my socks.

I'll do a proper FO post once it's dry.
For now I'm just enjoying the magic of blocking.

Blocking always amazes me, even after all the times I have done it. Takes a blob and makes it spectacular! The shawl will be cherished.
