Transformation

9 million pins later, the Forest Canopy Shawl is blocked.


Another knitter is overcome by the magic of blocking their first lace shawl.

Blocking lace does it everytime.

Looks good!

Great photo--that's definitey how i've felt, too. Hunched over, pins everywhere, a tug here means an additional tug necessary over there, and on and on. But damn, it's beautiful, isn't it? Can't wait to see it wrapped around you!

The transformation is ALWAYS amazing...and exhausting.

But I guess you already know that! LOL!

Enlist the DH and kids, next time. Make it a family affair.

My DH really enjoys helping with the blocking. I think it's the "caterpillar to butterfly" thing.
