Flower Basket Shawl - Part 2

I've finished knitting the FBS yesterday nite. Immediately blocked it. Its too huge, so I have to lay it on a cardboard. The photo looks a bit murky there, forgive me. I uses about 3.5 balls of the Peruvian Baby Silk as I add-in a few more repeats to the original pattern. I wanted something bigger so that I can wrap it in around my shoulder. With the weather in KL a bit cooling, I think the shawl will be in good use. Its really freezing here in my office.

Its a simple shawl and actually I should have completed it much more earlier if not of the wrong gauge. Anyway its done now, I have to wait and see after the blocking whether the edges will smooth out nicely.


Here's the close-up on the edges (I really love the edges)

A few of us, KL Knitters are doing a Kiri Shawl Along. Hope that it will go on smoothly. Waiting eagerly for the Rowan KSH to arrive so that we can start soon.

So for the time being, I think I should get back to Rosey. I missed her so much. Rushing to finish-up FBS and I realised that I've neglected her. Must get back to her soon. Its almost 2 months now and Rosey is still not done yet. Bad Bad Girl... I think I better finished up Rosey before I start another new project.

Thats all for now, will update again soon after FBS is block-out.

Cheers.
