I finished the knitting on my Diamonds and Pearls Shawl yesterday and it’s ready to be washed and blocked. Lace blocking takes quite a while to get just right, so I am anticipating a pretty intensive time getting this piece blocked. I want to handle it very carefully because the yarn is mohair and silk.
It was another very windy day in Taos so I had to take the picture inside. I’m still working on trying to get better inside lighting for pictures.
This is another little shawl that, while finished will be larger than it is just off the needles, will just float across the shoulders and a little ways down the back.
It was an amazingly quick knit, even though I had to mess around trying unsuccessfully to get the pattern bind off to work, and finally had to resort to a crocheted edging that was suggested by a number of people on Ravelry.
Besides blocking this shawl, I’m hoping to make significant progress today on my May Take It Further project.
