I WON AT YARN CHICKEN! And here she is….my finished Kindness KAL 2019 shawl in all her unblocked glory!
I squeaked by with just the tiniest bit of blue yarn left without having to break into the second skein. I did have a more substantial ball of the Salty Tales grey color left. I’m using Hedgehog Fibers Merino DK by the way. The blue color is Ink. I even managed to weave in but not trim my ends from all the color changes.
As you read this my shawl has already been soaked and is drying on the blocking mats. Jellybean helped me and we broke out my blocking wires and really gave this shawl a good stretching. In doing this we found ONE dropped stitch. I calmly grabbed my double ended crochet hook and laddered it back up and then secured it with a piece of waste yarn on the wrong side of the work. No one but me will be the wiser!
Humidity has come to Kansas for summer and so I’m not sure how long this puppy will take to dry. Jellybean keeps checking at least every hour to see if it’s done. I think maybe I’ll set a fan on it to speed up the process for both our sakes!
Go girl – yarn chicken bravery! Cute shawl.
Sometimes you win and …you did! Looks great!
Looks so good! Hope last night’s bad weather missed you!
Thankfully we just had some mild flooding. But seeing what hit Lawrence was scary!
Oh, lucky you!!! A whole skein of that lovely blue to do something else with!
I hope you are not in the part of the world having all of those horrible storms.
Unfortunately we are smack in the middle of them. The town 20 miles over was hit by a mile wide tornado just last night. It’s going to be a wild spring!
Oh, gosh! I hope you and yours are OK and have a nice safe cellar to go to. I think I would move into mine if I lived there.
Of for sure. We have a basement and a stock of emergency provisions
That’s good! Stay safe!
congrats on winning Yarn Chicken. thats always a good feeling. Stay safe also, have seen on the weather how bad the storms are right now
That turned out beautiful! Yay for winning yarn chicken! Nice that you have such a good helper 🙂
