I have finally blocked these 2 shawls I made for gifts.. never having blocked before, I have a bag of completed projects waiting to be done and I found I need to have more blocking units for some of the larger projects.. These are both patterns on Ravelry. The purple Demalangeni (note the lovely colors changes in the yarn) used 1 2/3 skeins of Madelinetosh superwash Magenta and I used my #8 red lace chiagoo circs.. it ended up longer but no wider than the pattern using the larger needle size than called for.. 60 inches by 26 inches. The burgundy Summerflies is made out of a acrylic mix with sequins that I bought on sale for $4 a skein at Tuesday morning, I lost the doggone tag ,grrrhhhhhh. The points did not block out as nice as it would have in a natural fiber. oh well, live and learn. The Summerflies blocked out at 50 inches by 17 inches.
