blocking is magic, part five

before

I never get tired of blocking. I swear, the minute the water hits the wool the magic begins. I should've taken "before" dimensions, because this baby grew. A ton. This is the prettiest sock yarn shawl I've made so far--the border lace is my favorite by far. Every time I knit with Sweet Georgia yarn I fall even more in love with it!

Yarn: Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock (colorway: Cayenne)
Needles: Size 4s
Mods: None! Will definitely make this pattern again!

  6. Beautiful! Wish I liked triangle shaped shawls, but I prefer crescents now. Wonder if that could be converted? Hmm, now I must research it.
