Dolce Vita

Another mystery KAL has come to an end. This time it was one of Birgit Freyer's designs, Dolce Vita. 

 For this shawl I tried another method of blocking. In an attempt to make the shawl symmetrical I doubled it over and then blocked it thus ensuring that each point had a matching partner. And the shawl is also quite large, it measures 208 cm by 76 cm.

 I knitted this shawl with Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 2ply which has been hand dyed by EmilyTheEnabler.  And I also added some size 8/0 Myuki beads.

 I like the size of this shawl and I think I might well get a lot of wear out of this one.

You have been working hard, Amanda! And the new shawl is lovely again.
Your new way of blocking appeals to me: I think I'm going to try that for blocking the SPF shawl. Only castng of still to do (720 stitches!)
