Blocking the Echo Flower shawl

with 1 Comment

So I finished the Echo Flower shawl I was knitting for the Historic Crafts knit along (KAL) on Ravelry.

It has really been the most amazing journey. it’s the second time I have knitted lace and the first time I have made a shawl and I loved every minute of it. Obviously I didn’t knit the whole shawl today – I just finished it off and blocked it today. The thing with lace shawls is that (as you can see in the gallery) when you knit it seems kind of small and scrunched up. But then you block it quite heavily and you get to see all the beautiful patterns.

The Echo flower shawl pattern is a free pattern by Jenny Johnson Johnen. It’s on ravelry but you can also download it here.

As my theme for this TAD is recycling I better tell you how this project fits in:

The yarn I used is 100% merino that I salvaged from an old sweater and 3-plied on the spinning wheel (meet the yarn on Grey Duckling)

Now it’s the waiting game. The shawl has to dry out while blocked and it should hopefully stay this way. But will I have the patience to wait for it.
