Study Hall Shawl

I finished my Study Hall Shawl last week. It might be the shawl that makes me a shawl person. I love it.20180823_1411068200878794325745035.jpg I’m so glad I used my Garden Wool & Dye Company yarn for this project. They are not colors I normally wear, but due to encouragement from AJ I decided to give it a shot. I think I’ll pick up a gray or black long-sleeved t-shirt and wear my shawl all winter long.

I wanted to block it in the sun, as it would dry in a few hours. After ruling out the back yard (Wrigley would run over it), the front yard (I didn’t want my neighbors to think I was crazy), and my driveway (I was hoping to leave the house that morning) I decided to use our small storage shed on the patio. 20180823_1102495466156871231205118.jpg

The shawl is bigger than the shed making it difficult to pin the shawl in place to block. Feeling lazy, I decided to try weighing down the corners with binder clips and hoping for the best. 20180823_1102201510565182295827340.jpg

It worked, and I’ll probably try that technique again. The corners weren’t as perfect as they would have been if I pinned them in place, but they are close enough not to bug me.

I had so much fun knitting this shawl. I might have to knit another shawl to see if the fun can be repeated.
