Practice!

What a pity... I finished the Bliss shawlette last night, but it's too small. It falls in the category of scarfs rather than shawls (even shawlette!)

Don't get me wrong, it's absolutely beautiful (even before it's blocked!) I like is so much that I have to redo it, but bigger...

It's not a problem either because I really enjoyed knitting it and I know that I will be glad I made it larger. And there is plenty of yarn left... I should have known, when I realized that there would be so much yarn left that my sample probably wasn't right ;-(

Wish me luck and I really look forward to showing you the real thing! This one was just a practice ;-)

Have a great week!

Courageuse Maryse... Me connaissant,je me serais plutôt dit: wow quelle magnifique foulard! Je le trouve magnifique ce "châle"!

Quedo muy bien, aunque sea pequeño. Yo prefiero los chales pequeños para usar como pañuelo.
Pero bueno, si disfrutaste tejiendolo y no te importa repetirlo en tamaño mayor, manos a la obra!

So sorry you had to frog it :( But the photo is gorgeous & I can't wait to see you wearing it! At least you enjoyed knitting it the first time, so it won't be so bad to do it over again :)

Quelle belle découverte ton blog. Ta visite m'a permise de découvrir le tien.

Il est sublime ce modèle de châle. T'es courageuse de ne pas désespérer devant un tricot terminé qui ne te convient pas comme tu l'espérais.
