I definitely want to post a longer update later but...
Look, a lace shawl blocking:
Yarn: DK or Sport Weight Alpaca yarn dyed by me in the color gunmetal - using a 3 shades of the same tone kettledying process.
Pattern: Lace Triangle Shawl

Didn't take too long to knit, can't wait to model the blocked shawl!
