Arrowhead Shawl

The Arrowhead Shawl is officially done. Originally I was going to photograph the blocking process from beginning to end as a sort of tutorial kinda thing, but I changed my mind. I can do that, you know. Change my mind.

I decided to block it on my bed because all the fur kids were in the living room, just waiting for me to lay it out on the floor. It's hard to block things on the bed because it's kind of soft and squishy. I did the best I could.

Comments: Love the pattern. Very well written and easy to understand. It took a bit for me to memorize the stitch pattern, but I did memorize it. That's something. I would recommend this for inexperienced knitters as a first lace project.

As cheap acrylic yarn goes, I like Caron's Simply Soft. It's nice to work with.
