My Sunday Market Shawl is nearing completion.
Two nights ago I finished the knitting along with all the drop stitches. Reading through the notes, I was a little nervous that the stitches wouldn’t drop easily. But not only did I knit it correctly, but it also unraveled very easily. I guess with some really fuzzy yarn, it takes a while. It took about one OnDemand episode of How the States Got Their Shapes. (Everyone should watch this show.)
It seemed a little weird to be pulling apart my work but it really made for a loose, drapey shawl. But it was all curly and needed blocking to show off those dropped stitches. So that’s what I did tonight.
I am not the neatest blocker but this really doesn’t need a really strict blocking with perfectly straight edges. It just needs to be stretched and keep the sides from curling.
