I finished knitting my Upstairs Shawl in July, but I didn’t get around to blocking it until last Sunday. (I also blocked two hats and a pullover. It was that kind of day.) Though I blocked it to 20″ x 58″, it eased back to 18″ wide after I took the pins out — the final size in the pattern is 22″, so maybe I need to block it again? Or maybe I can live with it.
In this fog-diffused San Francisco morning light, you can see the subtle striations in the yarn color. It’s my favorite thing about this piece.
