Get ready. Wait for it. Wait for it.
I stretched her hard enough that I had to use a couple of paperweights to keep the blocking boards from buckling, and she’s about 53 inches square. When I unpin her and she relaxes a little, she’ll probably lose an inch or two, but, still, she’s a nice size for a square shawl.
Here’s a closer look at the center. The difference in the color is due to some of the shawl being over the carpet while the rest is over the blocking boards.
She no longer looks like something my cat horked up.
Here’s a close up of one of the corners. I’m very pleased with how my corner attachment technique turned out.
Oh, and here’s a picture of my newest project, a Clapotis scarf knitting in my very own handspun, Cool Madras BFL from Corgi Hill Farm.
I’m using a 4mm Aero circular and it’s knitting up really quickly. The pattern is very simple and easy to memorize, and the yarn is heavenly. I can’t believe I made the yarn myself. 🙂
