It’s blocked! I finished it on Sunday night, and had to block it immediately. So I wound up just putting my blocking boards on the living room floor in hopes that Mel wouldn’t destroy anything. As it turned out, I didn’t see him sleeping on it at all, probably because there are so many more comfortable places to sleep right nearby.




I’m thinking I’ll reblock it sometime soon to try to get rid of the side scallops, but I really like the overall drape and look of the shawl now that it’s not all puffy from the garter stitch bits. I like the colors better now, too.

Specs: one skein of miscellaneous fingering wool (about 700yds) from MDSW 2005, first photographed September 25, 2005, knit on size 7 inox grey circular. Stitch pattern taken from the North Sea Shawl from Folk Shawls.
