By late November, everything about this shawl was done except for blocking. Knowing that it would be huge and I didn’t want to block it on our bed, I waited until we had the excuse to unfold one of our futons. I finally had that excuse on Monday.
When my brother stays overnight, he insists it’s not worth the fuss. But when his girlfriend stayed over with us, I wasn’t about to make her sleep on a folded up couch. Besides, as I said, I’d been waiting for this opportunity to finish the shawl.
Thankfully, it’s not too long down the back. The length along the sides makes it easy to tie or pin in front, and gives a lot of coverage over the arms.
I’m really happy with it, and I hope Gene’s grandmother will like it too!
