worked on it while in England
During my siestas in Cinque Terre
Waiting for the train
On the train
Finished it in Rome.
The pattern was easy to memorize and the shawl is beauiful. But. You knew there was a but didn’t you? I’d never knit a triangle shawl before because I suspected I wouldn’t like it. I was right. It doesn’t cover my arms enough and it makes my but look big. I want a shawl to be warm and snuggley and it might be if it were bigger. I’m not sure even how to wear it.
None of this is the fault of the shawl. Really, it’s not you, it’s me. I knew I wouldn’t like a triangle shawl so why did I knit one?
Any suggestions on how to wear it so I’ll actually wear it? It is beautiful!
I blocked it by misting it with water, will wet blocking make it bigger? maybe I’ll like it more if it were bigger.
