I finished up the Acadian Shawl over the weekend.
Wove in the ends, removed the Life Lines and Blocked it.
I was going back and forth about weather to severely block this shawl with blocking wires or just to stretch and flatten... I opted for stretch and flatten.
Dimensions prior to blocking: 54.5 x 14.5 inches
Dimensions during blocking: 74.5 x 12.5 inches
It might seem strange that it's 2 inches narrower after blocking, but it is 20 inches longer. ;-)
This fabric has a very nice drape, but I am seeing there might be a benefit to having a mannequin. ;-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
