Here is a knitted shawl that I have been working on for several months now. It gets put aside whenever there is a quilt to work on, but I am slowly getting it finished. I am a self-taught knitter. I have only done a couple of simple sweaters (intimidated by the necks and sleeves) and was not really happy with how they turned out. I usually stick to hats and scarves. A love of lace work has drawn me into knitting shawls. The pattern is from All Tangled Up and is called Kiri Shawl (pdf of pattern). I am using Kid Merino yarn (color 4677). I'll finish it eventually and will show you the finished shawl then.

I posted information on this shawl early last month.
Here is the shawl after blocking it. It turned out pretty good.
Well, I finally finished it and promptly gave it to my friend, Dr Val,. Here is a picture of the “blocking” process. The women at the Yarn Shop told me to put the shawl on a towel and use the steam setting on the iron. Just hold the iron near the shawl and give it a blast of steam.
