It was very difficult to photograph this shawl, subject of my last blog post. I realised why! It needed re-blocking!
The shawl now
I washed and re-blocked it yesterday to give 161 cm length (only an increase of 1 cm ) but the width increased from 50 cm to 60 cm and it looks SO much better.
The stitches have much better definition and the lustre shows through more.

I was going to post the blog about the construction and finishing of the Unst Hinnywaar shawl, this will wait a day or so now!
