Done at last! Friday night I got busy and blocked my shawl. I’m so pleased with it. I wish I had made the large shawl now instead of the small one. For my first shawl I think it turned out pretty well. I wasn’t real sure about how much to stretch it.
I think in some places it could have been stretched more, or maybe not.
I used T-pins, and towels on the kitchen table.

Me and my first shawl! ( I took this picture with a timer, not an easy thing to do! I’m sure the neighbors were wondering what I was doing – maybe trying to fly?)
