Blocking My Multnomah Shawl: Finally!

My finished Multnomah Shawl is now pinned to the back of my chesterfield drying.

I decided to block it with more pointed than curved edges.

It was a frustrating project but that was my fault. Even though I checked out the Multnomah Shawl KAL to look for pattern problems and interpretations before I started, I still messed up! The fan and feather lace was knit wrong and ended up like a ruffle. Way too many stitches!  I ripped the shawl down to the garter stitch and knit up the fan and feather again. Voila, you see the result above.

When the shawl is dry and I have my chesterfield back, I''ll model my creation.

Happy knitting!

It looks beautiful and without knowing about your frustration, I would never guess that you had issues from the photo. Can't wait to see a pic of you modeling it.

It's beautiful.

I think I kinda liked the ruffled look too!!! Some mistakes are happy ones, no?

It looks really good, I love the yarn you chose! And don't forget to post it on the Adventures in Lace KAL group forum on Ravelry too, I think we need to give that place some new life :)

Your shawl is beautiful! Love the colours. And as other posters have mentioned, I'd never have guessed there were problems. :)
