200th blog post: Purple shawl finish.

Well,  the raggy shawl is transformed. I blocked it overnight, putting my effort into getting the long side reasonably straight (that is, blocking it as close as I could to a triangle, rather than a quadrangle).

I should, perhaps, have paid more attention to ensuring the centre line was straight, but if pushed, I prefer the triangle shape to a perfectly straight midline with this pattern.

In the morning, voila!

The pattern has worked beautifully. I am so pleased with it.

I hung it outside on the mulberry tree - not yet in leaf - to get a sense of the light.

I get great satisfaction out of most of my projects. Somehow, however, completing a lacy shawl fills me with such joy.

This is my 200th blog posting. I'm glad it turned out to be on a completed shawl. I am still enjoying both stitching and posting - and sharing so much with blogging friends.
