Big Damn Heroes

It’s finished!  This is the Big Damn Heroes shawl/poncho/thing, knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina in Smokestack.  Despite having two skeins, which should have been more than enough for the small size, I ran out of yarn.  I ended up skipping the i-cord bind off and just doing a regular lace bind off at the end.  Also, once I blocked it and tried it on, I decided the neck line was just too big, so I seamed it up a bit.  Here on Fifi, I had pinned it smaller, but hadn’t sewn it yet.  I think my yarn choice made it grow a bit.  The original was a wool/nylon sock yarn, which would have had less drape and less weight than the pashmina.  Of course, if I had been thinking, I could have used a smaller needle size and by tightening everything up, there would have been less growth.

Either way, I’m happy with the finished project.  It looks cute on, and it’s super soft!

It's beautiful and the MT Pashmina is a really lovely yarn no matter what you are using it for.
