Phew! Two shawls blocked...
I must check the remainder of the yarn to figure out how much I used. I bought four balls but I've got lots left over.
I was quite worried that this alpaca wool wouldn't block well. So far it's looking good but I haven't exactly worn it yet. It's too warm outside for that, so I will need to blog about this shawl when it gets autumnal again (let's not think of that just yet).
Latest state of play:
20 Completed projects (yay!)
8 projects in hibernation (yup, chucked another couple in there for good measure)
I'm afraid I am sneaking a newly cast-on project in there. I was desperate to cast on a Niebling doily pattern in a white cobweb yarn that is so wonderfully soft and beautiful to knit with! I am hoping this is going to be a shawl. Right now I'm at the stage where I have to repeat the same two stitches times two over two rows about 20 times, it's getting a touch tough to get through...
I really should complete a couple more projects - for the variety!
