So if I decide to sit around the bedroom and wear my shawl I will be beautifully co-ordinated with the paintwork. It has been a long knit and am very pleased with the outcome. I decided not to block it as I like the lovely textured crinkly effect. It is soft as butter and I am so going to enjoy wearing it. Feeling distinctly un-photogenic with a cold sore coming on so have tried to capture the look without me.
