I finished knitting my Shell Shawl back in May, but did not have the space to block it as the spare bed was covered with boxes. Even though the boxes have been gone from the bed for a while, I only found the time to block it last week.
I purchased the fiber at Sock Summit last year directly after Abby’s intro to spinning class. After all she had said to buy something that you love and want to spin. I spun the fiber with both a Saacht Hi-lo and a Wildcraft Chillis spindle as they have the same weight. The singles were chain plied to maintain the colors.
