The kindness of friends

I finished the Kindness shawl for my BFF and she should have it in her possession by now.

Before blocking…

During blocking…

Only three yards of yarn left after an extra repeat of the Horseshoe lace…

I didn’t win at yarn chicken

I didn’t win but at least I figured it out before I got too far into the lace motif.  The Kindness shawl is off the needles and blocked.  I had 48 inches of yarn left after I did one row of the lace motif and an extra row of knitting.

I love it!

I love the colors.

I love the yarn.

It’s the perfect size to wrap around my neck instead of a bulky scarf.

And I only found one mistake.  But I don’t care.  At least it’s not a dropped stitch!

I bought some

Blocking wires that is.

The packet is quite small but then these are the flexible wires that don’t use up a lot of space when not in use.

This is the mixed set that includes 3 – 70-inch wires, 4 – 35-inch wires and 30 T-pins.

I’ve already blocked another neck wrap with them and they are a delight to use.

These were ordered from Miss Babs.  As a welcoming gift, she included three stitch markers…

…and a cute ten-yard twist of this gorgeous yarn.

One day I’ll even buy some of her hand-dyed yarns.  They are all so beautiful!
