Yesterday I finished a knitting project. I am participating in a Hap Kal on Ravelry and having lots of fun. It's my first time knitting a Hap, some might call it a Shawl, but do not say that to the Shetland historians! lol
The pattern is called Forest Path Hap by Patricia Fortune. For the yarn I used Rauma Finull a wonderful yarn from Norway.
The Hap is finished using the Picot Pinecone edge bind-off. OMG ... the longest bind-off I have ever done in my entire life ... but it does give it a pretty edge.
Yesterday, I blocked the Hap. I had bought these thin wires specifically for this. I'm glad I did, otherwise it would have been a "pin the crap out of it" event.
Looking at the photograph with a fresh set of eyes, I'm realizing that I should have used the wires for the top edge also. Note to self!
It's also my first time using these foam blocks and I must say I like them. Since I have other similar projects in mind, I bought another set of foam blocks. They are pretty and come in a lovely case.
Voila! We have a fini
Thanks for stopping by. If you are looking do knit a shawl, I strongly recommend Patricia's pattern. It is well written and easy to follow.
Catch you all later!
Beautiful shawl and yarns you used. I love all the nice yarns they have now, but so expensive.
thats very pretty.......worth the effort to see that pretty edge.....
