Twist again

The Twist Again Shawl was finished at least a week ago and blocked…twice.

I blocked the shawl wrong the first time.  What?

The points were supposed to be where the bobbles are, not in between.

So I kept the wires in the top, dampened (soaked) the bottom edges, and reinserted the blocking wires through the stitches under the bobbles.

Now the bobbles pop out more.

The yarn is Hacho by Mirasol Yarn (DK weight) in a multi-green shade.  I used 170 grams or about 470 yards.  I started on January 25 and finished it on February 5, 2021.  Not bad.

The pattern consists of stockinette sections with reverse stockinette ridges.  The lace pattern was fairly easy to figure out.  The rows with the bobble stitches were not difficult but I had to rest my hands after each of those rows.

This shawl will be perfect to throw over the shoulders of my green wool winter coat for more warmth on these cold, winter days.

Speaking of cold, winter days…we just got through the third winter storm so far this month. We are very grateful that we did not lose power or water.  I hope you are safe, warm, and have enough to eat.
