I guess you could say that this week has been a blocking festival.
My Mystic Waters is complete!
My first knit-along went quite well, and I kept up with each of the clues. The pattern was wonderful, and I love this edging that borders the entire shawl.
This is my other favorite part -- I love the design to the right and think it would make a lovely border on a wide scarf!
I love the specks of indigo that got caught (unintentionally, I must confess) when I was dyeing the yarn.
And yes, this shawl is HUGE. That's a full-sized bed, and it goes off the ends on either side AND reaches across all but 6 inches of it. I knit my shawl on size 4s with Knit Picks Laceweight, so I thought it wouldn't be as large -- it still hangs quite low on me. Luckily, the weather has turned here -- today I caught a chill so I wore both Mystic Waters and the Shetland triangle at once while I cooked my dinner!
