Oalet Shawl

Hello Bloggers,

Do you still remember me?  Holly molly, it was not my intention to abandon my blog for soooooooooooo long, almost 2 months!.   I was super busy this Summer but that is not a good enough excuse.  The reason was I lost interest in blogging.   I still made lots of stuffs though especially knitting and crocheting but I just didn't feel like taking pictures and uploading them.   Any way I hope this is just some kind  of stages that I am going through..

I always wanted to knit a shawl so here is my first one. It is for my niece.  It's called OaletShawl.  It's a free pattern on Ravelry.  Lace pattern intimidated me so this shawl was a perfect pattern for me.

To block the shawl I pinned it onto the squares foam mat then I spray warm water all over the shawl.  This technique of blocking allowed the shawl to try faster.  I didn't come up with the technique.  

Until next week

I always love seeing all of your handiwork. The shawl is gorgeous... Wow---such detailed, intricate work.. I'm impressed. Thanks for sharing.

welcome back Helen. I can relate to losing interest in blogging. I think we all go through it now and then. It's best to walk away when you feel like that and give it some time.
Your shawl is very pretty.
