I saw this shawlette pattern a long long time ago and really liked it, but the pattern wasn't available yet. I came across it two weeks ago on one of my Ravelry binges. So, of course, I had to cast on and get it made immediately! I made this out of Eucool. Wool & eucalyptus yarn. It has an odd feel to it. Almost spongy. I liked knitting it, but blocking it was not fun. I may not have done it right. I soaked the thing in water, then stretched it out and pinned it to dry. But it did not stretch out like I thought it would. It is much smaller than the pattern specifies. I think I knit tighter than I thought! Is there a cure?? Is there a different way to block it?? Anyone know??
