FO Friday: Camp Loopy Project #2

It really isn’t splotchy. I wet it with a spray bottle and hit a few areas a little hard.

If I’m going to keep knitting shawls I’m going to have to invest in blocking wires or a few hundred more pins. I didn’t have nearly enough to pin this out well. The edge is a little scalloped. The pattern is Daybreak by Stephen West. I knit the largest size. The yarn is The Loopy Ewe solid series in blackberry and smoke. I would love to knit this shawl again. It was a pleasure. The pattern was easy to follow and the yarn was lovely. I think the gray and purple are a good combination for showing off the design. This pattern makes a nice casual shawl that I think I’ll wear.

  5. absolutely stunning, love your colour combo. Blocking wires are definitely worth it and fairly in expensive … don’t know how I would get by without mine.

    If you don’t have wires, you can use heavy thread pulled taut.

    Love your color combo. Now I wish I had gone with a lighter grey on my current shawl. But it’s all good!

    Excellent job, Karen! It looks terrific. I have a set I bought some time ago from Knit Picks. Really worth it and very handy when I need to block. Look on Amazon or even Overstock.

    I have several Stephen West patterns in my library, yet none have been knit yet. I guess I need to get on that. Sorry your blocking isn’t the way you want it,but it’s still a lovely shawl!
