Heartland Lace Shawl

Heartland Lace Shawl — Shawl #1 for the 10 Shawls in 2010 Group on Ravelry — finished and finally blocked.  I had a little back trouble and had to wait until I could bend over the bed to do the blocking.  And here it is.

Heartland Lace Shawl
by Evelyn Clark
Malabrigo Sock – Persia (377 yards)
US size 6 circular
Started 1.1.10
Finished 1.10.10
Blocked 1.23.10
Finished Size:  65 x 25.5 inches

I’m very pleased with how this turned out.  When I started winding the yarn there was much more black and charcoal than I had anticipated and the turquoise was very bright.  After the magic of blocking, the pattern just pops and the coloring is dark but more subtle.

More pictures . . . rain and more rain this past week, so this is the best lighting I could get.  I’ll do some outdoor shots when the weather improves.

Thanks for visiting and have a great Monday!
