Maybe I should leave the blocking pins in place. Or add safety pins. Punk it up a bit more?
Pattern: Transatlantic by Stephen West, from WestKnits Two, or can be bought separately (that's what I did).
Yarn: Evil Schoppel Wolle Zauberball sockweight yarn in Schokocreme and Cranberry. I used 60g of the cream and 40g of the red. A few yards of gorgeous golden Yarn Yard silk to crochet round the holes.
Process: Easy enough once you get going. Slip stitches do all the hard work. Be sure to carry the yarn loosely up the side or you will get a lopsided shawl. Mine is a bit tight across the top left because I didn't realise this until too late.
I gave it a gentle bath in Soak for all of 5 minutes until I realised what was happening...
I am sulking.
It is PINK.
