The shawl is all dry!
I am very pleased with how it looks post-blocking, it really does make all the difference in the world.
Final Sweet Pea Shawl Verdict:
I had a lot of fun doing this pattern. it was simple enough to memorize quickly, but varied enough to keep it from getting routine. Despite not really being a shawl person, I really want to make another one now, as I love how the rows keep getting shorter, which is really encouraging. I do feel like I would prefer something with a little more variety next time.
I think my stitching was even and it looks consistent. I think I would have liked it better in a different yarn, though. Something thinner, and maybe in a lighter colour. I think for my next one, I will do something in a light grey/silver tone and in fingering weight or lighter.
I am also very thankful that no cats went to sleep on it while it was drying.
