Shawl for Henrietta!


Henrietta is my VW bug. She makes a nice backdrop doesn't she? She sits awaiting a new/used engine. I thought I'd wrap my completed Forest Canopy Shawl around her. Plymouth, 'Happy Feet' 5 skeins knit with a 5. I added one repeat of the last rows and wished I had added more but I wasn't sure if I had enough yarn. Of course now I see that I could have added one or two more. Even so I suppose no one would have noticed but me anyway! I do know I need blocking wires if I keep this shawl thing up!!

The shawl is beautiful and how fun to give Henrietta a shawl hug. I've not heard of blocking wires before so I'll go off and Google it to learn about them.
