It’s blocking, it’s finally finally blocking. I took this photo between pinnings:
I think I used over 100 pins, because I used one 50 pin pack from Clover (wow, those double pins ARE nice) and quite a few regular pins as well. Every single point is pinned out.
My back aches. So’s my head. Oy. Blocking lace ain’t fun.
But I couldn’t resist the chance to block the damn thing what with Mum and Dad and Charlie in Eugene and their Queen-sized bed all empty (and dog-free). This also means that Mum can’t complain about the shawl being “unfinished” any longer.
Haha, just in time for her birthday, a year later. Wow, I’m quick. (sigh) I’m going to remember this the next time I want to knit a present for someone (well, that isn’t socks). And TheBon’s wedding present (ack). And Emmos’ b-day present (which I scrapped). Knitting presents really just isn’t efficient for me…
Anyway. I have a meeting with ShiBui tomorrow (or I think I do) and I want to have everything ready in time – which means I need to:
- sew 11 buttons onto a calf-high spock
- edit the knee-high spock pattern again
- edit Clara and print it out
- find some Tylenol
Wish me luck! Please ^_^
