Fifty One Shades of Truth

I told Beth late Friday night (while I was frantically knitting) that I wasn't going to bed last night until the shawl was done.
This was at 10pm. Section 6 is done and I have picked up one side edge. Two rows of the side edge are done.

At 3 am. The first border is finished and cast off. I was so tired that I had to go to bed. 

I was back up at 8 and picking up stitches. The borders were taking a lot longer than I thought. I forgot that there are over 400 stitches on the needles for 10 rows.

At 3:50 this afternoon. Done. Cast off. It has soaked in Soak and is now laying out to dry. I'm exhausted. Not sure if it was the knitting, lack of sleep or the worry that I wouldn't make it.

Now I'm going to relax. Not sure what I'm going to work on tonight. I think my Linen Stitch Scarf. Or I might start my airplane knitting. The project is picked. I think :) There is still time to change my mind.
