Nurmilintu #4

This time the shawl is large, warm and comfy.
The yarn is hand spun and dyed Cormo sport weight.
I used size 8 needles. 
Right off the needles, it would have been useable.  It was large enough to make a good shawl. 
But the magic of blocking firmly opens up the stitches and makes a shawl with drape which is much more comfortable and attractive.  I have used up all my Cormo now.  I like making a dent in the stash!

  1. That's my kind of shawl. Pretty but really useful. I can just feel that squishy Cormo from here!

The Solstice Bloom!

 During the day I finished piecing some more flannel squares.  I was bored with the straight setting of the squares so put them on point!...
