swamp_ophelia Today's shawl blocking exercise: I'm in the mood it seems for washing and refreshing old shawls. This Shetland Triangle is five years old in need of cleaning and re-blocking. Made me fall in love with it all over again in the sunshine. 3d

swamp_ophelia And here is my finished Clothilde shawl, off the blocking wires and as beautiful as I hoped. A two week knit. So satisfying. 3d

swamp_ophelia He may not look all that happy about a little girl on his shoulders, a little girl who is not as little as she once was, but these two did enjoy getting around the markets this way this morning. The day will come when this won't happen anymore. 1w
