I've wanted to knit a shawl for ages.
Don't really know why, not even sure if I will wear it! But I wanted to knit one anyway.
I bought this lovely green merino wool in a sale, which made me very happy! And then I trawled my way through ravelry looking for patterns that I could use with the yarn.
I settled on this one because I like the combination of the stocking stitch and the frilly edge.
I loved knitting it.
Loved the easy-peasy stocking stitch.
Loved the wiggly edge.
Right up until I cast off.
Then it looked horrid. Small and shrively. Urgh, I was sooo disappointed! I blocked it. Firmly! I hoped very, very hard that there would be a blocking miracle.
And there was!
It was totally, utterly transformed.
It looked better. It felt better.
I love it again!
I took some lovely swishy washing-line photos, just because.
