I finally took enough pain pills to make it through the blocking of the Taurus Shawl by Monika Eckert of Klabauterwolle. This was a birthday gift in honor of her birthday. It so happens that both our birthdays fall under the same sign, so this was extra special. I used Cherry Tree Hill lace weight yarn and 3.75 mm needles. The shawl weighs 111 grams and is of ample size. While the Cherry Tree Hill yarn is a joy to knit with; the quality of the dye job, however, leaves something to be desired. First, the lovely Spring colors are spoilt by a dark blotch throughout the skein. Had the yarn not been 60% off at a LYS close-out sale, I would not have bought it. At the prices Cherry Tree Hill charges, I expect better quality control. Second, the colors were not set properly. The color left in the wash water was high, and I never could get a clear rinse water. But the shawl is finished. It's lovely, light and airy and will be a joy to wear.
