I didn’t knit this

This is the semele pattern done in wollmeise and knit by my friend Mary. She wondered if I would block it for her, and I finally got around to doing that. It looked great pre blocking, but blocking made that leaf pattern just highlight the shawl. So stunning! Since it required a light blocking, I didn’t do my crazy yanking and pulling and resetting pins procedure, which actually made blocking it a lot of fun. All I really had to worry about was making sure it was as symmetrical as possible. This is so lovely that I am considering knitting it as well. Very beautiful work!
