I, of course, knew better. It was made from a single skein of handmaiden camelspin in madder. Camelspin comes in 300 Meter put-ups, and 300 Meters is a good size, but not huge. I mean, the thistle shawl took just under 900 Meters to get to the size it is.
Speaking of which, I measured the relaxed-after-blocking thistle shawl and it's.. um.. huge. 70 inches from tip to tip across the top and 40 inches down the center. I'm 5ft 4in tall, and when I hold it up, the top of the triangle is almost shoulder level with the tip being precariously close to the floor. And it has room to grow, as it wasn't a severe blocking job. I just ran out of space to comfortably block on my son's king sized bed.
But I digress.
The true point of this is I just measured the blocking 'shawlette.' I may have to upgrade the sucker to a shawl after all. Fleece Artist: packing magic in every skein.
|The shawl is actually straight , the bed is crooked (I use a yardstick)|
And another for gratuitous foliage because I can.
