Not a Boomerang

That thing from the last post is growing and doesn't look so much like a boomerang any more. It's a Multnomah Shawlette, with one modification. I'm making more repeats of the feather and fan part than the pattern specifies, to make it more like a shawl and less like a scarf.

I can't decide how hard to block this once I get it off the needles. I'm thinking not as vigorously as I would block lace that's all based on stockinette stitch.

This is a quick and fun little knit. I'm embarrassed to admit that I did need to restart the feather and fan section after I was about 4 repeats in. The second time through, my hands and brain were working together and I became able to do it on autopilot.

I like that purple. And don't worry--I have been known to mess up a 2X2 rib multiple times!

It's good that you ripped, because now it's just right.

Yes,it's perfect! What a lovely gift.

I'd seen some on Rav that were blocked to harder points, and I avoided that myself. I think the gentler blocking retains the curves that go so well with the stockinette.

I don't know why I feel the need to post a teal dear "me too" but there you have it. I'm a nerd.
