I finished the knitting (I was a little bummed to be finished, it was very rhythmic and pleasant) and the casting off, (which was considerable) and now I am anxious to see if I got those beautiful scallops that GirlGoneLoopy got!
Here is the unblocked shawl.
I like to wet block, so I gave Haruni a bath with a little wool wash. I squeezed the excess water out (without wringing) and then wrapped it in an old towel and let the 3YO walk on it for a bit. Then pinned it to my blocking board.
(sorry for the out of focus pic, it was dark)
After it was dry, Haruni got a photography session!
With hydrangeas from my garden.
See the scallopy goodness?
The little swirl at the corners makes me swoon.
And the point is sublime.
I got my scallops, the colors are awesome, and the shawl is finished. I am so pleased, I could pop!
