Golden Shawl

Finally, a picture of me wearing the shawl that I finished months ago. I started this one twice, originally it was to be triangular but it was restarted and is now a rectangle. It is lovely and light to wear and blocking improved it tremendously. Click on it to see my glass pin. It looks perfect on this shawl. The yarns were a silk eyelash from Fleece Artist, the Green was Distrato from Gedifra and the shiny ribon was Kimono Ribbon from Louisa Harding.

Blocking: is there anything it can't do?

I have always wondered, how do you know when it is time to start the heel in a toe-up sock?

Gorgeous shawl and gorgeous pin.

Heather, for me it was trial and error. Now I know to line it up with the outer edge of my ankle bone.

Your shawl is really pretty too! I love all the different yarns. Did you use a pattern or make it up?
