Lace again

And suddenly I was  proud owner of three more shawls,

I have a tendency not to block at once...
This one is called Scotish tistle and I chosed the pattern for it when I was going to Edinburg, thought it was suitable. One of the borders are a frost flower but this yarn does not let the pattern show off. The pic is from the blockning, I´ll do it on my bed, and I sometimed put the matress on top and sleep on it to...
I let the shawl soak for about 10 minutes in lukewarm water with a little shampoo in it and when I block I´m brutal!!! and I use pins with glass nobs so they don´t get stuck in tha matress and they are also easier to remowe, I just bought new ones, not that I needed but there was this little cute retro tin...
In Edinburg I bought the yarn for the Lotus shawl that I knitted on when I was in San Fransisco and in San Fransisco I bought a recycled denim yarn that I have to have a plan for when I´m going to Ireland....
Knitting shawls when travelling is super it´s really packing light
