I finally finished one of the (too-many) projects I’ve been working on, a crocheted shawl in sock yarn:
This is before blocking:
And then while blocking, stretched as neatly into shape as I could manage:
And then once it was dry and holding its shape, hung out on the line so you can actually see the design:
It does need to be re-blocked with proper blocking wires or blocking line, but for now this is fine.
Because I have no new orders to dye until after next week (eeek!!!) I will be spending the time charting this out and preparing a package to include this design, as well as general instructions for the concept, several other designs that can be done, and a blank form in which to create your own design. Once you understand the process of making the boxes and the open spaces, you will have everything you need to know for creating your own unique version.
This particular shawl used up nearly all of 2 skeins of Phydlbitz Sock yarn, but each design’s yardage requirement will depend on how much open-mesh there is and how many filled-in boxes. To fill the entire triangle with filled-in-boxes would likely take 3 or more skeins. And, of course, if you use sport or worsted weight, your yardage requirements would be vastly different.
