I took a detour on the way home to the yarn store to look around.
I walked in....
Then I saw it....
I HAD to have it....it SPOKE to me.
It reminded me of a mermaid and of the sea.
I used the same pattern that I used for Jenn's Gone Banana's, see last post.
It looks more green in this pic...
...but this outside picture give you a better idea on the true colors.
Pre Blocking- 45' x 22' inches
I used almost EVERY bit of the yarn. There is a golf ball left of yarn.
So here I am soaking this shawl...
LOOK AT THE WATER!!!
I thought for sure I was going to pull this out
dnd there would be no color left on the fiber.
But alas....it's all good LOL
Final measurements: 56' x 30'
By blocking I gained several inches to the shawl.
