Friday Finishing---My Knit Shawl


I finished the knit shawl except for weaving in the loose end threads. Still haven't found the skein tags but will do soon so I can share! I used 2 hanks. Final measurements unblocked are 79 in x 16 inches!


All garter by increasing from bottom up KFTB on each end of the row.


I have a shawl pin that will work well or simply will tie it in front.


I love the way it turned out. The color. The softness. The small amount of mohair in the yarn. The size and most of all the joy of stitching with Knitter's Pride Dreamz circular needles! (#15)

Pictures forthcoming tomorrow after I weave in the ends for the final finish! I could definitely snuggle with this shawl right now as we are having Blackberry Winter here. It's quite rainy and cold outside and weather forecast for rain until next Wednesday.

Good stitching and reading time.

Till later,

Jennifer

  4. Looks really pretty. I love the color - totally love it! I've started one in a bluey/green Shepherds Worsted by Lornas Laces. I think/know I will have to get another skein of yarn.
