So I finished knitting myself my very own handspun Annis back in December, and never managed to get around to blocking it. In fact, I never blocked it.
Instead, a friend blocked it for me. She has the benefit of a spare bed on which to block shawls and I’m very lucky that she offered her services or this would have stayed lumped on a chair in my living room indefinitely (along with a sweater in need of blocking & buttons).
Since getting it blocked, I have made this my new spring scarf. Nice, light, crunchy but quite warm. It’s a most welcome change to my winter scarves. I definitely foresee more such shawl-scarves in my future. And out of handspun would be just divine.
Though I’ve been wearing it this way more than the other. Thanks so much Amanda for blocking this for me! I know I have some overdue cross-stitch to get to.
Next up: I finally finish things I started ages ago.
