Simple Triangle Shawl

by Andrea on February 15, 2014

Knitting week continues with this simple triangle shawl.

20140215-113358.jpgThis was my hospital knitting project when my mom was sick last month, but it took me until last week to block it and weave in the ends.

The fiercest lions lie at the final gates.

I used a merino-bamboo blend.

20140215-113516.jpgAt first I didn’t like the finished shawl because it felt too heavy and didn’t drape well. Blocking made such a huge difference. Now it is light and airy.

I am not sure what will become of this shawl. I have a strong hunch it will become a gift. But for who?

Many thanks to the persimmon tree for being my dreary day photo prop.

Lady, I have always known that you were a gifted knitter, but truly you have the mind of an artist. It never would have occurred to me to “block” portions of it v. straight knitting in order to lighten up the actual wrap and the look. I hope your lovely little family had a WONDERFUL Valentine’s Day!
