Summer Moon Shawl is finished!
It's all pinned out - and it's quite a large shawl! This time, I'm going to spritz it with a mixture of water with a bit of Eucalan wool wash (this is usually what I use to soak my finished knits in). It will be an experiment, but I've been reading that many knitters do this and thought it was worth a try. The reason it isn't spritzed yet, is lack of a large spray bottle to put the mix in, so I'll pick one up when I'm at the store (the little ones I have available would take forever and probably make my finger sore). At least it's ready to go, and all spread out so I could take these pictures!
Here's another picture:
In my last post, I was trying to get the post finished and entered in the soap challenge, but I missed the deadline by seconds!!! The reason I know it's seconds, is that I saw the entry button, with directions, but wanted to open another window so I'd have the instructions ready if needed, and in that short time, the entry window closed. So I'm going with the motto "try, try again" and planning to try again next month!
