red on red.

this isn't the best picture (stupid flash,) but i'm sure you can tell what's going on here:

yes, that's the Shetland Triangle. it's currently pinned down quite thoroughly, thus preventing any chance of escape. now that i think of it, this is the first time i've ever truly restrained a knit garment like this--i know now that it won't be the last!

no, i don't have red carpet around here. that's a red towel in place to ensure that my white carpet doesn't develop a pink triangle. the Zephyr wool-silk (colour: carnelian) ran a little in its Eucalan bath so i didn't want to chance it (i have half a mind to run to Jysk and acquire several differently hued towels to accomodate future blocking projects.) now all that towel is doing is preventing me from getting a decent picture of the shawl. i'm not complaining too loudly as long as it keeps protecting my floor.

there will be finished shawl pictures tomorrow!

I miss Jysk...

I can't wait to see the finished product. That is a lot of red!

It's looking good! I can't wait to see it against a contrasting colour background :)

thanks, both of you!

London is getting a Jysk at the end of May, according to their site.
