Almost Done ...

I finished knitting the Summer Mystery Shawl by Wendy D. Johnson. It was a nice knit. I have so many shawls in my queue, so I cannot realistically say I would knit it again, but as a pattern, I would definitely knit it again.


I still have not perfected my blocking skills ... as a matter of fact, I hate blocking. I think I need to invest in some blocking wires ... I hate trying to get the top of the shawl straight and once its close to a straight line I give up and let it be.


Points on the other hand, I love putting pins into those!

The shawl looks lovely. But can ai just say, if you buy blocking wires you will never regret it. It speeds up the pinning process so much and adjustments are so easy.

It's beautiful, the colour is stunning. I keep meaning to get blocking wires... I rarely make shawls, let alone lace, but I still want some!

Gorgeous! I really love that color. Blocking wires are totally worth the investment. I used to dread blocking shawls and other large pieces of knitting, but now it's not as tedious.
