Hey Now Shawl Complete
I've been itching to share this shawl with you all. If only you could see this in person, what a delightful sweet easy to knit shawl. Definitely give Reyna Shawl pattern a look see. The pattern is quite easy to memorize and execute if you are familiar with lace knitting.
Amanda decided to dip her toes (hands?) into hand dyeing yarn and this lovely skein is the result of her masterful talent in pairing colors together. I loved the yarn base she chose and of course the sweet tonal colors of pinks and purples. A delight to knit with!!
I decided to block the shawl aggressively to gain as much growth as possible. Ordinarily I do not block garter stitch, but with only 400 yards of yarn I had a wee shawlette. Blocking did its magic and now the shawl can be worn on the shoulders.
As you know I wear shawls around my neck like a cowl. So pretty in pink!
