finished?

My wedding shawl is done! I think. Bound off, removed all the lifelines except one, bunged it in a bath. (Perhaps more like "placed gingerly" in a bath...)

Not going to lie - it looks a little small, even though I knitted one more repeat than called for. I'm optimistic that blocking will make it expand to fit my imagination, but if it doesn't, I've still got a lifeline in there and plenty of yarn left, so I can add some more lace.

I love watching the transformation of blocked lace, and I'm very excited about this piece in particular. It is definitely the most complicated lace I've ever knit, so I hope it will be worth it. Exciting times, people!

  1. Oooh, it looks gorgeous pre-blocked, can't wait to see how it looks once it is actually blocked :) I'm sure it will be big enough :)

  2. Just by seeing the picture I can tell you that I think it is completely worth it! It looks amazing and I'm sure that the blocking will make it perfect (check out the blocking before and after board on Ravelry).
