My Forest Canopy has been done for over a week. I had a slow Sunday yesterday so I took the time to finally block it. For some reason, blocking this project was exciting for me. I positioned my fan in front of it so it would dry quickly.
I am pleased with this project. It's a small shawl but that's okay. I'd like to make another one for my mom but using twice the yardage. This one takes around the same yardage as the Ishbel. The smaller Ishbel is 330 yards while this one calls for 325.
I couldn't see myself in a brown shawl at first and considered giving it away but I'm keeping this baby.
I completed the body of my 'Yoke Pullover' early last week. I really like the way the Fisherman's Wool knits up. With the brown no longer being in skein form, I can see the possibility of an attractive sweater on the horizon. I've regained respect for the brown. I will begin the sleeves later this week and once those are done the excitement begins. I have not figured out which colors will go where for the yoke. I'm still thinking that through.
So, if all goes as planned, later next week I should be done with both sleeves and happily working on the fair isle portion.
That's the plan anyway.
