On The Blocking Mats: Shawls!!

Different Line Blocked
This is Different Lines by Veera Valimaki.  I knit it in Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock in Interlaken colorway and Wollmeise 100% Merino Superwash in Feldmaus colorway on US size 6 needles (4.0mm).  It's an asymmetrical, garter stitch shawl that utilizes short row construction.

Wingspan Blocked
This is Wingspan by maylin Tri'Coterie Designs.  I knit it in Fibernymph Dyeworks Bedazzled in Wayfarer colorway on  US size 4 needles (3.5mm).  This is also an asymmetrical, garter stitch shawl that utilizes short row construction to create 8 triangles. It was SO fast and easy to knit.  PERFECT TV knitting!



  1. I so love both of these shawls!! Though, I haven't looked through Rav yet to see the different ways people are wearing them. I'm not huge on the lacy shawls & both of these are calling my name! Definitely jealous of your blocking boards too ;)

  2. I love the shape of wingspan it is truely a really cool shape.

  3. I just finished Stripe Study Shawl
    and have Line Study Shawl in my queue

    Also, just added Wingspan. I have Bedazzled in Ode to Van Gogh

  4. Where do you purchase those blocking boards? I've been blocking on sheets over quilts on the rug, and nothing is level or even.

  5. @Trillium I got mine from KnitPicks :)
