Over the weekend I finally blocked the Damson shawl that I knit earlier this month. Another fine design by Ysolda, is you ask me.A quick knit that is one of those one skein of sock yarn will do ya'. Might be my new favorite kind of thing to knit.
I did run out of yarn on this one, I had to cut the stockinette portion short. I had to stop at row 90 (I think) and move on to the edging. When I knit the next one and were to run into the yardage issue, I would likely use the mods that this Raveler did on her Damson. I think it looks great.
I love mine nonetheless. I love the color, I love the drape of it, I love that edging.
The Pattern: Damson by Ysolda Teague
The Needles: US Size 5
The Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Lightweight Rare Gem (plus a few yards of coordinating sock yarn to finish the last fifty or stitches in the bind off)
The Time to Knit: Just under two weeks.
The Result: Just lovely. Can't wait to wear to knitting group and show it off.
