Unnamed shawl

Here's a sneak peek at the shawl I'm trying to design. It's not great or earth shattering. I know that. But after a dozen failed attempts, it at least doesn't look absolutely horrible.

This was my progress yesterday:

And here it is ghetto-blocking today (because I own neither blocking boards nor appropriate pins):

The colors in these photos are way off. The yarn is sort of a dusty brick color. At any rate. There it is.

And (on the off-chance I get around to linking up with the Yarn Along) reading? Erm. I've sort of been (re)reading Good Omens but mostly I've been watching Hart of Dixie on Netflix. I sort of got sucked in.


  1. Oooh, I love it! It immediately reminded me of something an elf would wear. Like the elves in Lord of the Rings :-)

  2. I don't own blocking boards, I use t-pins and the carpet in the guest room :) Love your design! Keep going!!!

  3. How satisfying to create your own design. It looks beautiful.

  4. Oh wow what a beautiful pattern you are creating....blocking eh I might try that one day lol!

  5. I blocked a shawl on a couple of lonely ceiling tiles I found in the basement with a towel over it...using a striped towel made being square easy!
