Now for the Blocking

I finally finished a project for myself. This is the Josephine Shawl, from Ravelry. (I really must learn how to link to Ravelry from my blog.) The yarn is what I purchased on our trip last summer. It was a little hard-spun for knitting, but I wanted a souvenir of the trip, and I was interested in the natural dyes. I am hoping that it will soften some and bloom a little when washed and drape a little more when it is blocked. We'll see. The yarn was millspun on site, but it is still a little bit rustic, and I had some trouble making my garter stitch look even. It was almost like trying to knit my handspun.
