Ta-da! At last here it is, my Forest Canopy Shawl! I haven't knitted a shawl for years, the last shawl I made was in 2-ply baby wool about 9 years ago, and I certainly didn't block it that's for sure, so the whole shawl and blocking thing was very new to me.Forest Canopy Shawl
Yarn: Posh Yarn Emily in Recite
Shawl edging: Chrissy's custom-dyed Emily yarn
Needles: Pony 5mm
Now I do hope you will all forgive the light on these photos - truth to tell there IS no light of any shape or description, and so this is the best I can manage!
Now, who would have thought that this little kite shaped thingy would block out and become something completely different!
I discovered that the picnic blanket was ideal for blocking - straight lines to guide you and a waterproof backing.
Monica thought it was her turn to do the modelling again
And another close-up!
I have many people to thank for this shawl. You all know who you are, but a special mention must go again to Pictish, terri and Chrissy. I'd also like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement when I ran out of yarn. This is a lovely pattern to knit, and I dare say there will be other Forest Canopy Shawls in the future.
