Hello all! I humbly present my Traveling Woman Shawl for your viewing pleasure. It's my first shawl and obviously my first triangular shawl  Roll Eyes I used a wonderful Emerald Yarn that my friend's husband dyed and she gave to me so I could do this project. Comments and Critiques welcome and appreciated!

Not your obvious first at all!
It looks great! Well done!

My comment (a question, not a critique) is that your blocking looks like mine ... do you think it is stringent enough? (I always have an internal debate with myself about how far the pins should "stretch" the work.)

It was my first time having to block a project so I was pretty intimidated. I thought it would pull back in but was delighted that it didn't.

I kind of wished I had continued the stockinette to make it a longer shawl so I stretched it with blocking to compensate.

Hope that was the answer you were looking for  Wink
