With diligence and time, I finally finished the beautiful Wellen shawl this weekend. I love the color I chose (Madelinetosh Tosh Lace in Saffron), but it really came to life when I blocked the piece to reveal the gorgeous play of the pattern. Its amazing what a complete transformation happens in that final step! So I can mark off another christmas present complete. After I finished using the finest yarn I’ve knit with to date, I knit up a quick short scarf with some chunky yarn that had been hanging out at the bottom of one of my stash bins. It was really interesting to go from one extreme to the other.
