Remember that shawl that I posted without taking a good picture of first?
Well I have my photo!
Isn’t it just lovely??? Megs of course but also my shawl!!!
The pattern is nurmilintu and I just finished another, this time for myself and also in my own hand dyed yarn.
Blocking it made such a difference. But blocking with cats? When they’ve taken one of your blocking mats to be their new scratching post? Not fun.
At one point Tina ran off with a pin in her mouth and I had to chase her through the house so she didn’t hurt herself. In the end I locked them in their room (formerly the spare room) pinned it all out and then put it outside and once it got dark then put it into our bedroom and closed the door.
That’s the problem with open plan houses. No place to block your shawl with two nosy kittens.
I’m still not entirely convinced that the lace panels are correct. Either due to me not being able to count or the chart being wrong, but I don’t really care.
It’s colourful and warm and soft and it won’t leave my neck for at least until I finish the picot scarf that’s nearly off my needles.
One thought on “Finished object 8&9 – nurmilintu ”
Your shawl is beautiful! Made even more beautiful with your lovely yarn!
