Filed Under (Knitting, Lace, Shawls/Scarves) by jennyk on 02-03-2006

It is finally finished and blocked and currently drying on our bed. I used wires to block it, along the top edge and a pattern repeat in from the scalloped edges (visible in most of the pictures), then pinned the loops of the scallops before removing the ‘internal’ wires. The blocked size is 72″ by 43″, and it took almost exactly 1000 yds of Zephyr. Click on the picture of the whole shawl to see a larger version. I’ll try to get pictures of it draped and/or being worn this weekend.

Absolute perfection! I ponder using Zephyr versus some other wool, but seeing this makes me realize that Zephyr’s the way to go. Now if I can only knit as wonderfully as you…… Brava!
