Well, the shawl is almost finished. It is off the needles and photographed.
Because its size and shape, I dressed it folded. I first pinned the back gusset to shape, then one wing, then folded the other over the top and pinned that:
Because of the double thickness and the fact it was alpaca, it took a while to dry, but it has kept the blocking well:
The fringe is now in progress. Yes, I did have plenty of yarn and will have some left over after the fringe – so it has taken 250 g of the Artesano 4 ply alpaca for the shawl and about another 50 g ball for the fringe.
Being alpaca (a heavy fibre) it doesn’t need the fringe to weight the bottom edge, but it is looking nice! Final pix and details at a later date – I haven’t weighed and measured it yet.
This was a nice warm knit – perfect for the silly June temperatures we have been having – I am now missing the nice warm weight of it on my knee… Still, another shawl is next up, this time one to be ready for Knit Camp…
