Finished Melon



At last I have finished Melon and I love it . After blocking it, it now measures 23" wide by 86" long. I did the pattern as stated but the yarn I used was more fingering weight so I guess that accounts for it being bigger than the size stated in the book. I love the fact that I can wrap myself in it and the yarn which was 50% silk & 50% cashmere has soften so much after washing it



My next one from the book I think will be 'Dolphin Lace' which I have some Posh Yarn cashmere/silk in a deep pink to use . Not sure if this will be for me as I am not a 'pink person' but we will see :)

beautiful melon shawl. Sounds like the yarn is really soft too.

I knit the dolphin lace scarf and it is confusing. I posted about the problems that I had here, and on my blog at brewerburns.blogspot.com (look at my March archives.)

Your melon is beautiful.

I knit mine to the pattern specs with KSH, and it turned out a lot bigger, too, though not as long as yours.
