#1 of 11 in 2011

I have completed the first shawl for the 11 Shawls in 2011 KAL. I knit the Stacy shawl designed by Wendy Johnson (wendyknits). I used Tempted Yarn's Lovely Grrl yarn in the colorway Renewal. I used all but 1.5 yards of the 375 yard skein. I loved working with this yarn.

This was my first blocking attempt since surgery. I managed not to poke myself, but I could not snap the blocking board pieces together properly. I could have blocked it much larger if the pieces had not kept coming apart. I could not bend forward to the center of the bed, hopefully I will be able to again soon.

Blocking is hard. :( I keep thinking I have it down, and then something happens. Wonky shawl lines, a cat snags it, etc. Rawr!

Kudos to you for taking on that challenge. I am intimidated by the thought of that many shawls.
