Loopy Academy, Semester 3, Texture
I knit this in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Heavyweight in the Big Brain Blue color way. I used all but about two yards of the first skein on the body of the shawl, so I used the second skein on the edgings. Both skeins looked identical, and even when they were knit up, I still can’t tell that there were two skeins used. I was counting on any differences being camouflaged in the textural differences between the body of the shawl and the edgings, but I don’t think that was actually necessary in this case.
After I finished knitting it, I soaked the shawl and after squeezing as much water out as possible, just spread it out over some towels to dry under the ceiling fan. I didn’t use pins or blocking wires, I just made sure it was spread out smoothly. The finished shawl is 71 wide by 21 deep, so definitely big enough to snuggle into!
