Imagine When Shawl Complete


I finished this shawl a few weeks ago and was delayed sharing the results but here it is.  I enjoyed the construction of the shawl, short row shaping and asymmetry were paired together to create an almost triangular shawl.

I wish that the shawl was bigger, much bigger.  I usually do not block garter stitch shawls aggressively because I love the garter stitch squish factor.  However, this shawl needed to be blocked for the length needed to wrap around comfortably.  Once blocked I was pleased with the shawl :)

I wonder if a thicker yarn would have been a better choice?  If I do make this shawl again, that is what I would chose-a heavy fingering weight.  I loved how the pattern was written, and the construction was fun to watch unfold.

  5. The weight is just right, I'd say -- light enough to bring to mind a pale blue sky with thin, soft clouds. :)
