Elegantly Simple Triangular Shawl Knitalong

Blocking

When I blocked my shawl it seemed to me the edges were a little tight.
The slipped stitches did not want to stretch as much as the knitted part.
Is this the way it is supposed to be or did I do something wrong.

Nancy, you might have the same tendency that I do and that is to tighten up that slipped stitch prior to the first knit or purl. I can't seem to change that about my knitting.

Margaret, I guess that is what I did. It blocked out alright but I would have liked to stretch it a little more.
Will post picture as soon as I get a good one.

I'm trying to loosen mine after reading your comment, Nancy as I have a long way to go on my tencel shawl. I'm about to finish the 5th repeat of Chart B.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures.
