The Shawl After Blocking

Today I unpinned my Chocolate Cherries shawl and took it outside for a photo shoot. IMG_3819It’s significantly bigger now, has much better drape, and the eyelets are nice and open. It still wants to curl a bit at the edge, but I expected that, and it doesn’t bother me. Here are a few more shots of my new pretty:IMG_3824 IMG_3822 IMG_3821 IMG_3820If you’re interested in the details, the project is Ravelled here. I’ll probably wear it more as a scarf than a shawl, and I probably won’t wear it often. But when I do, I’ll think of Mother’s Day when I got the yarn, and of my dad, who loved chocolate covered cherries. ❤
