Shipwreck Shawl – blocking

Originally uploaded by addlepated

I had great fun with this shawl, even though I had some “adverse events” take place during its construction. I really need to take a whole-shawl glamour shot where it’s not all full of pins.

The pattern is from Knitty, the yarn is from Perchance to Knit, and the beads are from Legendary Beads.

This was a side project that I started to work on while I was traveling. I couldn’t work on my Shipwreck Shawl outside of the house because of all the beads! Anyway, I tried to squeeze an extra body repeat out of the yarn and didn’t quite make it all the way through the pattern. It’s missing about 3 rows from the bottom edge.

The yarn is Studio June Star Struck, which is a merino/silk blend that has strands of silver running through it. It’s a wee bit scratchier than I hoped it would be, but it makes a very pretty shawl.

I made this shawl for my friend, who is getting married this summer. There are a lot of details in it that I’ll explain further once she has received it and had a chance to look at it, but if you’d like to look at more pictures, they’re in this Flickr set.

I finished my version of the Aestlight Shawl over the weekend. It was a really enjoyable knit, although the edging got a little tiresome after a while. You can see more pictures of this shawl here.

Woohoo, I’m back on the needles again.

I did the Forest Canopy Shawl in Wollmeise Vergißmeinnicht.

Mods: I repeated the body pattern 15 or 16 times, whichever got me to 307 stitches on the needles. I did 12 rows of the border repeat, adding beads on each twisted stitch. I blocked the bejeebies out of it.
