Hello there, my friends, I'm back today to show you my French Cancan Shawl all finished and blocked.
I'm extremely pleased with how it's turned out, I love the pattern, the cable border and the feel of the shawl around my shoulders.
I've recently purchased these clips for all these shawls I've been knitting, lately, they are from an Etsy shop called Tix Trinkets, and they just clip either side of the shawl edge and keeps the shawl in place.
I did end up blocking it twice, the yarn is very stretchy, when wet and I just felt as though the garter stitch was too open so it went back in the sink and soaked again. The second time I just laid it out flat and gently opened up the cable stitch by hand, rather than pinning it. I much prefer how it's turned out after the second soak, I could of used it the first time as a blanket!!!
Check out some other FO over at Tami's blog.
I will be starting another shawl on the 1st September but I will tell you more about that on Wednesday. Have a great weekend.
