A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

August 1, 2006


Pattern: Idella from Stahman's Shawls and Scarves
Yarn: Peruvian Nights, superfine alpaca from Joslyn's Fiber Farm, and Honey Lane Farms Alpaca for the edging
Needle: US7 and 8 Addi Turbo

I finally got to use my dressing wires to block this shawl. They are great but my board is still too small for a shawl which is why the very bottom center of the shawl isn't fully blocked out. The shawl in bigger than I thought it would be. I was worried that it would come out very short as I only had 600 yards of the main yarn.
