Close-ups of First shawl and 2nd one

This is the second Forest Canopy that I am knitting it is made out of pure wool so I will have to use some type of rinse when I block it to make it a bit softer. But it will be great to where over long sleeved shirt in the fall and when you just need to take the chill off. That is for those who live outside of the TX area lol. This one is destined for a Christmas gift.
The above shot shows the point details. Yeah I know some are a little off but for the first time blocking I think it's darn good!!

This picture above shows the detail a little better. This was such a joy to knit and rather fast. I bet if I worked on this several hours a day that I could complete one in 2.5 maybe 3 days!!

Here is another shot of the shawl this time I took the picture with it on the ecru floor tile. I can hardly wait to wear it for the first time!! That is it for the shawls I will post again with some of the other recent photo's I've taken. Have a great Friday night all!

Keep them needles busy!!

Hi Gammy,

For the first shawl I used Handmaiden's Silk Maiden in Vintage colorway and the I used Louisa Hardings Grace in that brown colorway can't remeber what number it is though I tossed the band.

The second shawl I started I am using 1-ply pure wool spun and dyed by my friend Marie. She lives in Canada and she has an eBay store called: Mirari Crafts. She has incredible colorways and I can't wait to finish this shawl so I can see how it will block. The first one was a 50/50 Wool Silk blend and this is pure wool. Thanks again for your kind words!

I am currently working on my 1st forest canopy and I just love seeing how different they all look with different wools used.
I enjoyed reading your blog.
