oops. I realized that I haven’t shared any news on the completed shawl. I have photos!!
first of all, I soaked it and blocked it, pinning it directly to the floor, those straw tatami mats are great for that……..on a beach towel to absorb the water…
and then I had my fine young daughter model it for me……..
i am quite pleased with how it turned out. I used a whole skein and decided I wanted to mke it bigger, so I started another skein to knit a few more rows….
Oh, and here is another scarf I made with smaller needles and no lacey holes…. kind of more bandana like, it’s being modelled by the woman I gave it to. I added a glass bead to the bottom corner………..
alrighty, that would be the knitting update then.
