My Koigu shawl is finished. So is Lexi’s Spider’s Web shawl. Guess what is blocked and drying? Yup, my darling daughter’s shawl.
First I soaked it in Soak. And it bled, a lot!
Then I started blocking. At first I felt bad for Lexi. All that knitting. It was at about 1,200 stitches per row at the end! She did all the work and I got to block it. Part way through, I decided she owes me. Big. Here it is with the blocking wires woven through all six sides, but not pulled tight.
Then I started pulling each side tight and pinning it down. As I’d get one side nice and tight, the pins would start to pop on an already completed side. I finally got out the big dog T pins.
Here it is, Lexi! Do you love your mommy??? It’s 72 inches from point to point. And she was worried that it was going to be too small!
Tomorrow, I’m blocking my Koigu.
I’ll leave you with a sneak shot of some lace I started in Florida. No, it’s not on my WIP list, because it’s going to be finished soon. I’m not working on anything else until it’s done.
There’s a possibility that I may be blocking three lace things in one week. I think I’ll have lace out of my system for a while!
