Lookin' good so far, but we'll have to wait for it to be unpinned to see the true beauty of the thing. Do you like my little shoulder pads? Since it is a Faroese shawl, it's not flat. The shoulder shaping gives it a bump for your shoulders. I thought that I'd like to account for that into my blocking, hence the two folded up wash cloths. I don't don't if it will make a big difference in the long run though.


  1. Oh, Laurie-- what a lovely reward for all your hard work! What will you knit next? Something that's not pink, I bet!

  2. Gorgeous! What a pretty shade of pink too.

    I love the transformation that lace knitting goes through in the blocking process.

  3. Laurie,
    That is a beautiful shawl. I love the Faroese shawls for their shoulder shaping and non-pointy backs. Yours is lovely.
