Blocking does wonders.

I am always amazed at what blocking will do to lace projects.  This is the Traveling Woman Shawl .  The pattern was wonderful to follow and very well written.  I chose to do five repeats of Chart A, which is a variation on the Horseshoe pattern.  I also did a different bind off edge to make the edge much more elastic.  I am quite pleased with the overall design.  The fingering superwash wool is made by Aisling Yarns .  The wool is such a pleasure to work with!  The yarn is super soft and the colors are always amazing.  As much as I love this shawl, I am thinking that this will be a birthday or Christmas gift for a close family member.

Finally, a knitting blog is born!

Just creating a name for this blog took quite some time.  All that thinking was time not knitting.  I have finished one project this past week and I just cannot wait to wear it.  If only the weather would cooperate with me. I think I only have a month or two more before Autumn finally arrives.
