Knitting: Trousseau

Shawl - Trousseau

Pattern Trousseau 

Yarn: Garnstudio DROPS Baby Alpaca Silk

I can finally blog about this seeing as the person I made it for has been given it. 🙂 This was a really fun knit, I was a little nervous about it when I started because the pattern was so simple (its a very simple repeat) I was sure I would end up missing yarn overs or something, and I did initially at the start, though I managed to find out where I’d missed them. Once I got going though it was much easier. Very fun to knit. 🙂
Blocking was a bit of an issue – there wasn’t the floor space to spread it out properly so I had to fold it in half, this also made it easier to make sure I’d matched the edges together on both sides, so that its somewhat symmetrical. Its funny this makes it look even smaller than it actually is.
