Luna Moth Shawl Completed & Blocked

Due to the warmth of the furry angora, I decided to make my Luna Moth Shawl smaller than suggested by the pattern. I wanted a shawl that would cover my shoulders or to wrap over a winter coat. Therefore, I knitted a total of four pattern repeats rather than the six recommended in the pattern. I used four balls of angora (122 yards each) which yielded a shawl of 60 inches at its widest.

Like the Shetland Triangle Shawl, the Luna Moth Shawl had little bumps in the woolly mass. As suggested, I soaked it for over a hlf hour. Since I’ve developed my allergy to lanolin, I’ve been adding hair conditioner to the water to help soften the wool.

Now that it’s pinned in place and blocking, I’m proud of it. During the knitting, my knitting buddies had great fun petting the balls of angora.
