On My Needles
My shawl is coming on with only sneaky moments of knitting this week.
I blocked the scarf I finished for my daughter and was pleased the knitted lace fabric became softer.
Fortunately, my daughter loves it, and the scarf has another special purpose – A blanket for her Monchichi doll 🙂
