Blocked Henslowe!

I followed your advice and “night blocked” the shawl – pinned it out in the evening after Gregory went to bed, set a fan to blow on it over night, and then unpinned before he was up for the day. It worked out very well!

I listed all the details of this project in my previous post. For the sake of completeness I’ll add that I used US4 needles, and the finished size of the shawl is about 55″ across the top, and 17.5″ deep.

The yarn blocked beautifully, and I look forward to wearing this scarf/shawl in the fall!

    I love wearing crescent-shaped shawls as scarves. And Henslow has the perfect combo of dense knitting to keep you warm and a lacy edging to make it pretty (and a bit more fun to knit, too).

    Congrats on figuring out how to block with Gregory around. I’m sure that’ll come in handy quite a few more times.

    I was enjoying reading the comments on your last post. I’m glad the night time blocking worked. I’ve used that method when I need to block quickly. The shawl is beautiful!

    I’m also curious about the modifications you made. Would you share them with us? I’m headed to the yarn shop in the morning and I just may pick up something to knit this lovely shawl!

    I like to check in to see if you’ve made a new post, and sometimes like to read the comments others have made. I can’t believe how many spam comments you have! Have you thought about adding the “type these letters” kind of security to your website? I know I get this kind of spam every so often – and I can ban the URL’s from comments. So sorry to see you are getting hit!
