Thank you so much for all of the great comments and suggestions regarding my teeny tiny shawl! I decided to try a combination of suggestions. First, I re-blocked it. An hours’-worth of stretching and grunting, pinning and re-pinning, won me a precious two extra inches. That’s not a whole lot, but I think it actually helped a bit.
Then, I pinned it to the front of the dress using my grandmother’s cameo pin.
I like it. I still only intend to wear it if I get chilly. This is most-likely the dress I am going to wear, and I really love it without anything covering it up. Thanks for your suggestions! I’m glad I will actually be able to use this shawl, after all.
And while I wait for Sunday, I have it hanging between two cabinets in the dining room – maybe I’ll stretch a few more inches out of it yet!
And on one last topic, did you know I have a new mailing list for you to join? If you’d like to be notified when there are new tutorials, patterns, and ebooks available in the shop, sign up for the mailing list, and I will be sure to inform you!
Ok, that’s it for me and this quickie post today. Things to do, people to see, dontchaknow!
