Serpentine

Here’s the Noro Serpentine. We’ve been having rain, so I can only offer very unglamorous, blocking-in-the-garage shots. My photographer (Melissa) would be glad to point out the the blocking mats in all the *&@# different colors don’t help either.

See the eyelet rows with the blocking wires running through them? Before blocking, these were the wavy rows and the center section was more or less straight. The blocking turned it into an entirely different shawl.

I loved, loved, loved knitting this shawl and look forward to making at least one more in a more traditional lace or fingering weight yarn—but didn’t the Noro come out nicely? It reminds me of a very meandering stream with pebbles shining beneath the water and the brightness varying as the sun filters through the trees.

    The Noro IS very beautiful. It’s not one of my favorite yarns to knit with but this is a gorgeous pattern for it.

    What sort of blocking pads to you have? I’ve been thinking of buying the grey matting for playgrounds. Yours look larger than other ones I’ve seen.
