Too impatient to dig out swift and ball winder so I wound it by hand. Love this “new to me” yarn!

Finished…. I am blocking it now but not really pinning it out tight since I don’t have blocking wires. Gorgeous.

The yarn really does run, I ran the shawl through a fresh Eucalan wash 5 times and the water was still blue.

Wore it for the first time today and LOVE it! So much warmth in such a little package. I am contemplating making another one in some heavier yarn for a larger shawl. I clearly need to find someone to take pictures of me since my attempts at doing it myself are not the best.
