Finished Seraphim!!

I'm so excited - Seraphim is fresh off the needles, and even unblocked it's lovely. I won't be blocking it til next week so pics will come then. I was just so happy I had to share.

Thanks to Mim for a beautiful pattern worthy of knitting again (but not right away - Icarus awaits!), and especially thanks to Mim for so much help via email when I got stuck. This was my first charted shawl and I had a few stumbling moments, but learned a great deal and I'm not so put off by charts now!

I will say, I am a big girl (3X) and unblocked my version (Frog Tree Brushed Suri Fingering Weight on size 5 needles) just barely fits around me. I'd have to use a shawl pin to hold it closed. I'm hoping the blocking will help, or I may gift it to my Mother (who was recently in an accident and might enjoy a warm shawl in the evenings). So if you're wanting a wider/longer shawl I would definitely suggest following the instructions for making it bigger.

Happy Knitting!!

I'm sure your shawl will grow when it is blocked. I blocked a Branching Out scarf last weekend and it went from 48 inches long to 60 inches.

Congratulations on finishing already! I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.

It should grow when blocked. My laceweight shawls are usually only shoulder coverings until they're blocked, and then WHAMMO! Full sized shawl ;)

Wow that was fast LOL!!!

I'm definitely going to make mine bigger. I'm still working on the stockinette part...

Cheers Eva
