Artesian - Finished!

The sun is out this morning!  It makes the snow look pretty.  While I wait for the snow to melt and go away, (It’s March.  This is Texas.  Stop winter!) the birds are putting on quite a show for Max.  He loves watching them at the bird feeder.

Also, I finished my Artesian over the weekend and now it’s blocked and ready for it’s close up!  This was definitely a pattern that benefitted from blocking.  It looks so much better now.  It’s also a lot bigger.  I didn’t measure it, but it’s over 72 inches across the top edge now.

It’s knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in the Mandala color way.  I worked seven repeats of the pattern and I used slightly more than one skein.

Here’s a close up of the eyelet section after blocking.  Once I got a feel for the pattern and what was going on, it went very quickly.  I used colored markers to keep track of where I was in the pattern, as I explained in a previous post.  I’ve also added notes to my Rav project page.

I’m really happy with the way this came out.  It’s an interesting, non-traditional shawl.
