In the past few weeks, I've spent most of my spare time working on a Craftsy class, Alder Shawl. I was hoping to expand my understanding of chart reading and learn some new skills. The only thing new I learned was the Knit Two Together Through the Back Loops Bind Off, which I really enjoyed.
This is my first half circle shawl. The design is wonderful, but I am not a fan of DK weight yarn. I prefer working with fingering or lace weight.
It's easy to see that this shawl needs to be blocked, which I will do after the weekend. My sister is coming to visit, and I use the bed that she will be using for blocking my shawls. Since this yarn is a cotton/acrylic blend, I think it will take a couple of days to dry. It will be nice and cozy on cold winter days!
