[personal profile] tephra
I managed to get a shot of it today between spats of rain. This one is a full sized shawl on me, though at 80" across and 40" down the spine I know that's a large shawl on most people. I could drape is over my shoulders and catch the points in a belt, the sides rest on my elbows worn that way.

Forget Me Not shawl

Strictly speaking, this has not been blocked. It's acrylic so as long as the lace doesn't distort the fabric much you can get away with just tossing it in the washer and dryer, so that's what I did. If I figured out somewhere I could pin it out to a larger size and steam it I could make it a bit larger still, but it's big enough and flat enough that I'm happy with it as it is.

So other than works in progress and that even older shawl that does need to be blocked (OMG, where??) I think the only things left needing photographing are the assorted balls of yarn I reconstructed and the spinning wheel that is still wood bits and bolts in the back of my Jeep.
