1. You don’t have to block your shawl but if there is a lot of garter stitch it’s a good idea. You can shape it however you want while it’s damp. Your spinning is looking great! I’m glad you got to enjoy some alone time this weekend. It feels so weird doesn’t it? I am still trying to get used to being “without child” as mine is in college now. I really enjoy all the “me” time, but I do miss her bunches.

      I was trying to think of where I could set it if I decide to block it. I’ll have to leave it overnight in my room with the door shut so the cat doesn’t get to it.

  2. How do you like spindling? I have not been able to get the hang of it; at first I thought it was the weight of my spindle (I made my own out of a dowel and a wooden toy wheel) but I got a real one & I still can’t seem to keep it spinning. I can only get anything done at all by parking and drafting. I’m almost finished saving up for a spinning wheel, but I’d like to get the hang of the spindle too… xo

      I really like my drop spindle. I watched several videos on YouTube for weeks before I worked up the courage to actually try it out. I still can’t keep it spinning as long as some of these ladies who’ve been at it for a while.

  3. Love that beach picture and totally get it about relishing time alone as I was a single mom years ago with a 4 yo boy. It was such a treat to have time to myself but I always felt a little guilty. Now he’s a grown man! Your shawl is gorgeous! I knit a similar one last year which I lightly blocked on the kitchen table, however, I don’t have any indoor pets to worry about…
