I posted about this knitting project some time ago, but never managed to finish this post and it sat in my draft posts for ages.  The knitting is done and the final process in completing my shawl involved blocking, a process of washing the wool, then pinning it out to the right size and allowing it to dry.

I had the idea of taking a photo of my shawl down on the boardwalk, but the day that we took these photos was extremely windy.  Instead of an ‘on location’ photo shoot, it turned into a battle to hang onto the shawl and to keep my hair out of my eyes.  So much for knitting model glamour!


  1. The shawl is so BEAUTIFUL, Marie! I love the simplicity of the design, and the colors. That bit of blue is just the right bit of "extra"... It's hard being model to one's own creations, so I know what you mean... We never look like in the knitting magazines do we? LOL... ;) ((HUGS))

    1. It is a favourite of mine. No, I don’t think that we ever do manage to recreate that image seen in the knitting magazines.

  2. Your shawl looks gorgeous. The lacework has opened out beautifully with the blocking. Moreover I think you look splendid modelling it! Enjoy wearing it. Bx
