I’ve not yet blocked my shawl. Rather, I have been thinking of excuses for not doing so.
It’s been one of those weeks — too many non-knitting-related things to deal with when I get home from work in the afternoon, so no time for blocking. so I think the blocking will have to wait until the weekend.
So meanwhile, I have started something new.
I am using “Traveller,” a yarn from Cephalopod Yarns. Cephalopod Yarns began as part of The Sanguine Gryphon. When The Sanguine Gryphon closed its doors last year, Cephalopod Yarns came into being.
I’m using the “House of Strangers” colorway.
Traveller is a DK-weight superwash merino wool, with 280 yards per 4-ounce skein.
I’m knitting this:
Yes, it is yet another sideways thing.
Oh, I just thought of another good excuse why I can’t block my shawl. Lucy is in my lap.
Must not disturb the Little Princess!
