FO on Saturday

Yesterday I blocked the Geology Shawl. It was a lovely sunny, warm beautiful spring day. Then the humidity rolled in. The shawl dried quickly, mostly. Today it feels damp-ish.

I may have made the points a lot less rounded than they should be. My heart just isn’t in blocking something knowing it will be packed away until fall.

Finally a close up showing the different layers.

The pattern is Geology Shawl by verybusymonkey. The yarn is Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors in the stones dancing in the fog colorway. (The color is closer to the first two photos.) The pattern was a gift from Chrisknits. Thank you! I loved knitting this pattern. I would knit it again and again. Each layer makes you want to knit the next one. It’s real potato chip knitting. The yarn was lovely to knit with and blocked beautifully. The only recommendation I have for others knitting this pattern is to follow the instructions to make it larger. It is a smaller shawl and if you have the yarn you’ll appreciate making the bigger size.

    It looks great! Doesn’t it feel good to have it done? And maybe you can wear it on a cool spring day… then pack it away for winter. Something new for next winter that doesn’t involve knitting in August! Yea!

    I really love how it turned out! It looks wonderful. I agree with Salpal, it’s too pretty to put away. Wear it on a cool spring day or evening. It is worth showing off.

  15. It’s a beauty – well done! I have never been a shawl knitter or, indeed, a shawl wearer, but I saw Mary Poppins Returns on Saturday and suddenly started craving capelets to wear over a winter coat! I may yet start looking at shawl patterns.

  16. Wow, it’s beautiful! What a shame it has to be packed away and you can’t just wear it forever

    Omg it’s stunning. I love the color, the pattern and I hope you wear it anyway. It’s still freezing on The Cape so I’m still in cashmere daily. I got 2 days on the deck in the sun but was in jeans. So cold here.
