My first shawl completed

Following on from the earlier post about things I am knitting for me – I have finished one. I finished the Sunday Market Shawl on Friday evening and blocked it yesterday to shape it.

Here is a photo of the shawl part way through the dropping stitches process

The shawl measured 139cm in length when I had finished knitting. I didn’t realise it was going to grow so much whne I wash & blocked it! It grew to 248cm in length! Here is a photo of it blocking yesterday on the floor.

and on me 🙂 I have to figure out to  wear it due to it’s unforseen length.  I have a kilt clip that I could use……
