Suri Shawl Blocked

The sun came up and through the clouds illuminated this.

It is not just a shawl but a small, light blanket.  I'm sure my mom will find this useful.  If it wasn't for her I don't think I'd give it up.

Here's my matador pose.

and just wrapped around me.  I feel under-dressed for this shawl and yet it is sort of casual.  It weighs a bit more than 14 ounces, fairly light and yet so warm.

I blocked it under a twin top bunkbed using blocking wires.  It ended up being easier as I just stretched it to the dimensions of the bed.  It relaxed a bit when I unblocked it.  If I do another large triangle it will be trickier.  This is yet another reason why lately I am favoring rectangular shawls.

  1. Your Mom's shawl looks lovely...light,warm and comfy.

  2. That is a beautiful shawl. I think the rectangular shape is nice, it's certainly less common these days.

  3. I think I will try to talk my boyfriend into getting a 'manshawl' instead of a cardigan. but then again it is spring. being snowbound really helped me finish this.
