aww thanks.  Smiley blocking is where u wash or moisten your knitting then pull it and pin it shape and let it dry. Very good for most knitting, especially good for lace knitting, cos thats when it really gets beautiful and all the detail can be seen. here's a link for blocking a lace shawl...

awwwww, sorry to hear of your loss. But it is wonderful that you are taking her tradition and putting your twist on it with her photo for all the family members. it is a lovely idea, great gift and the ornaments are very pretty. Happy Holidays to you!  Grin Grin Grin

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Laminaria Shawl for friend to wear on her wedding day :O) on: December 12, 2009 07:09:54 PM
i knitted this slightly modified version from the Laminaria Shawl pattern from knitty..

pattern:

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTlaminaria.html

Pics all the pics i have are from when it was pinned while blocking...


edging


it is made with a circular size 5 needle and Gloss Lace yarn in bare from www.knitpicks.com. The pattern is great, and i really enjoyed knitting it. i've also made another for an aunt.

 i live far away from my friend, so when she told me she was getting married i wanted to make her something special for her big day. i showed her some things i'd made, and we discussed what she was gonna wear. i showed her the pattern and some photos of other peoples versions of this shawl.. she loved it, so i went ahead and made it for her. she then told me she had brought her date forward to just 3 months notice!! so i knit as fast as my little hands could!! i then blocked it, packaged it, sent it to her, it arrived with few days to spare. she ADORES it, and so did everyone else. it looks lovely in the photos i've seen from her special day. maybe i'll ask her if i can post one that shows the shawl on here. :O)

Nothing particularly original, but it is pretty.  Wink so i thought i'd share..


detail

i like the way it turned out, the colours match my tree ornaments perfectly, i made it for our door, but i think i might like it too much to hang it where i can't see it! lol!
