I cast on with some of Debbie Macomber's Petals Socks- an incredibly soft angora blend I purchased on a trip to Monterey last year. The yarn was.... a hot mess. It shed EVERYWHERE as I knit with it and continually got tangled in the skein. I pretty much had to fight with it the entire time. But still, the shawl came out beautifully and now it's blocking.
|I moved recently so I didn't have my blocking pins or even a mat! Boo.|
What was really great about knitting this was that I started it a few months ago, progressed to the lace portion and then tired of it for some reason. So I got the feeling of a completed object in just the amount of time it took to knit half of the lace! Maybe I should hunt though and finish up some more of those old lingering projects, huh?
