Speed knitter, amateur blocker..
..professional sit-under-shawl-and-eat-biscuits-and-drink-tea-er! Pattern: Hay Meadow - Julie Ferguson (Girl's size) Yarn: Artsesano British Wool - Chunky (astonishingly the yarn the pattern is written for - so rare!!) Needles: 8mm, 100cm circ Started: 9 June 2013 Finished: 15 June 2013 Ravelry page I knit this shawl in a blink of an eye for me. I was slowed slightly by the cast off which required three attempts to get the right balance of some edging and enough yarn for the greedy picot bind off but then we reached 'time for blocking'. I have blocking wires, this is not heirloom lace I should be able to do a reasonable job. I managed a 'it'll do for now I want to wear it' job but with a little more patience I will tame that picot edge next time around!! Anyway I love this shawl! Just a small one, the pattern book suggests wearing it bandana style but I think it sits nicely on the shoulders. The fronts just drape round with the weight
