Heart Shawl

I finished and blocked the Heads Will Roll Shawl over the weekend and I'm so happy to finally be done!

The pattern is Heads Will Roll Shawl by Bunnymuff. I used Schoppel-Wolle Lace yarn in Hei├čes Eisen and like how the gradient left the hearts red and the pink strip is very near the bottom. The pattern was a mystery knit along and I was surprised how large the finished shawl turned out (I really shouldn't have been though, it seemed like I was knitting this thing forever).

One little disappointment though; the shawl pattern is for a heart shaped shawl which I didn't realize wasn't a literal heart shape. Heart shaped shawls are crescent shaped with "wings", but I did my best making it as heart shaped as possible when the ends come to a point. Here is my blocking setup (I'm now recording these because there aren't that many pictures of how people block their shawls on the internet). I got to use my new lace blocking wires for the first time!

Now I need to finish knitting my Air Shawl.
