FO-Forest Canopy Shawl

Here it is, blocking! Done in Jojoland Melody, 2 skeins. VERY easy pattern. Great first-time shawl. Too tired to post more details... ask questions...

Love the subtle colour changes. Out of interest what is it pinned to ? Blocking is new to me :) but I can how it works ..

Beautiful. Like the way you blocked it. I have wished many times I had my mother's old "curtain stretchers". It was an adjustble frame with small nails and she stretched out her curtains and tablecloths after washing them. They would work great for blocking large items. Have tried to find some but not able to.

Exquisite! Looks like a butterfly's wing.

Fantastic, love it.

Beautiful, the definition comes across perfectly. Also, the color variation is sublime.

Love those long colour runs on the JoJoland. It's one of the few variagated yarns that works with a lot of lace patterns.
What were your dimensions on the shawl? I know a lot of people have said it's more a "shawlette" then a shawl.

Off the top of my head, the wingspan is about 5'. I'm not sure how "tall" it is, though...

It IS kind of a shawlette. I had to extend the pattern, too, since Jojoland is thinner than the recommended yarn. I did about 15-16 repeats after the initial setup knitting.
