It was a close one

I won at yarn chicken but it was definitely a close one. I had just 5g left of that 4th skein of yarn.

I took a quick picture before I put it in cool water and shampoo for a soak. It was looking pretty small so I measured the unblocked size. It was about 34″×36″.

After a spin in the washing machine I pinned it out as much as I could. I might have been able to stretch it a bit more but didn’t have much more room. This and the unblocked picture are on our king size bed.

As you can probably tell it’s quite a bit larger. It measures about 54″×60″ while still pinned out. That’s some impressive expansion don’t you think? I found the T-pins more effective for this than the Knit Blockers.

I am working on the pattern revision and will post beauty shots of the shawl when I have the pattern ready.
