I tried to get photos of the completed Holbrook shawl yesterday, but they didn’t turn out very well. Today was a much better photography day.
On my monitor, the shawl looks slightly more orange than it is in real life.
You can see that this is a pretty good-sized shawl. I wanted one that was a little larger than most of the ones I have, so I’m very happy with how it came out.
The knit fabric changes dramatically after a wet blocking. Of course, that’s true of any lace, but this yarn in particular seemed to be very dense and too-tightly-knit while it was on the needles. But after the blocking, it has a beautiful drape.
And yes, it was definitely worth the time to block out all of those eyelets along the edging.
