Last time, I blocked the entire shawl, and lost a bit of the ruffle as a result. This time I will only block the top in order to eliminate the roll-over. I love the little ruffles!
Now on my needles is a Top Down Icelandic Sweater. I have never knit color-work before and am excited for this project. It is a Craftsy class, and I'm sure that the online component of it will be very helpful. My main color is still on back-order, so for the time being I have cast on (German Twisted Cast-On, which I have never done, but seemed to master), and I have knit the ribbing rows. I have also watched many of the episodes so that I have a clearer understanding of reading the chart and how to incorporated the other colors. I suspect that I will have some time before my other yarn arrives, so I plan to do some practice knitting following the chart. I should be ready when it gets here!
I'll keep you posted!
