FO: Bliss Shawlette

I love it! Here is my beautiful and perfectly sized (!) Bliss Shawlette:

The magic of blocking has occurred ;-)

Perfect to be worn at this time of the year!

Pattern: Bliss Shawlette by Melissa Wehrle (Neoknits)
Yarn: Handmaiden Fine Yarn Double Sea Silk (more than 1.5 skein)
Needles: US 8 / 5 mm
Color: Topaz
Start to finish: March 27, 2010 to May 30, 2010
For: Me
Modifications: Replace the k2tog by ssk on the left side. Many other knitters have also done this. That makes the two sides more alike. Also, I've knitted 40 more rows of the Herringbone pattern. That made the shawlette block 50" by 25".

Once again, I love it! The Double Sea Silk is wonderful to knit with!

Here is my favorite photo:

I highly recommend this pattern. It is fast and pleasant enough to knit twice ;-)

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Du boulot en double pour un résultat vraiment impeccable. La bordure me plait énormément. Beau boulot.

Y si, el bloqueo es magico, cambia totalmente el aspecto de una prenda.

Haaaa....quelle déception

Tu tricotes quoi présentement?

Je pensais bien qu'en cliquant chez-toi je tomberais sur un autre truc à ajouter à ma liste des "préférés"

Bon week-end!

J'adore ton BLISS. et il est beaucoup plus grand que le mien! Et il faut dire que le handmaiden n'est pas un suplice tricoter :)
