A-muse-ing? Yes! (+ a give-away!)
Yikes! I admit to weighing it over and over again while doing that last row. Does knitting faster use less yarn? I'm sure it must. And yes, for those of you who are wondering...I am altering the pattern a teensy little bit to make the yardage a little more forgiving!
So. Wanna see? Here she is blocking!
Those are super flexible extra long blocking wires I am using, from Inspinknity. I love them deeply. See how they curve around?
I used them at the top of the shawl, as well. They even everything out so much better than just using pins.
And now, because I am too excited to wait until the end of the post...Rachel at Inspinknity has agreed to give one of her lovely sets of ultra long premium blocking wires to a random commenter on this post! Is this not fabulous?! So...please keep reading. Details at the end!
This shawl design is a little gift to a friend who loves gold. And fleur de lis. (The lovely lovely yarn is Pale Au merino/silk from Ripplescrafts who will have more soon! Plus she might have a little deal on said yarn.)
My interpretation. I think my friend likes it. So far, so good!
Right now, I'm fixing up the pattern and sending it off to my testers. But meanwhile, you get to guess her name!
Leave me a comment with your guess as to the name of this muse and you will be entered to win the fabulous set of extra long blocking wires! You have until 11:59 PST, Saturday June 2nd. Ready? Go!
