Stædig er mit mellemnavn / Stubborn is my middle name

Min fridag i går skulle bruges på at få det der sjal færdigt. Faktisk har jeg strikket så meget sjal, at her ikke rigtigt er blevet julepyntet endnu, men de små jule-mus/bamser kom da frem til at holde mig med selskab. De er virkelig hyggelige!

My day off from work yesterday had to be used on finishing the shawl. Actually, I've been so busy with the shawl that I didn't really put up a lot of Christmas decorations yet, but the tiny Christmas-mice/bears did come out to keep me company. They are so nice!
Jeg strikkede. En hel del! Først strikkede jeg 7 motiver, før jeg holdt en pause.
Det tog et par timer.

I knitted. Quite a lot! First, I made 7 motifs, before taking a break.
Took me a few hours. 
Så strikkede jeg de sidste 5. Jeg tænkte, at hjørnet nok tog en time. Max. Så selvfølgelig tog det 2!
Nå. Men nu er det strikkede færdigt. Der skal så også være en hæklet kant. Opskriften siger: "Finally, work one row of single crochet (US) on the angle of the front of the border and 2 rows of chained arches at the bottom of the shawl. In the first row, single crochet in every other garter at the selvage and work 5 chains in between. The second row is the same except that the single crochet is on the center of the arches in the first row. At the center, work 1 double crochet (US) into the single crochet."
Det er ikke, fordi de ligefrem bruger staveplade og Youtube...... Heldigvis er der billeder både i opskriften og på Ravelry, så det går nok, men det må vente, til jeg kommer hjem fra arbejde!

The I knitted the last 5. I figured the corner would take like an hour. Maximum. So of course it took 2!
Well. Now the knitted part is done. There is also a crochet border. Pattern reads: "Finally, work one row of single crochet (US) on the angle of the front of the border and 2 rows of chained arches at the bottom of the shawl. In the first row, single crochet in every other garter at the selvage and work 5 chains in between. The second row is the same except that the single crochet is on the center of the arches in the first row. At the center, work 1 double crochet (US) into the single crochet."
It's not like they explain everything in detail using Youtube...... Fortunately, the pattern and Ravelry shows photos, so I'll be alright, although it needs to wait until I get back from work!
