I have been blocking shawls,
And more shawls,
And still more shawls.
I love what blocking does for lace. It's a lump of knitted yarn before and something beautiful after. (Yes, Dena, I did fix the left side of this as soon as I saw the picture and don't worry that girl doesn't read this blog.)
I must confess, though, that most of these shawls you see blocking were not knit by me. Dena knit one and a friend knit the three lovely colorful ones. I bartered blocking for other services . . . a win-win if you ask me.
This lovely is blooming in the SubT (subterranean) greenhouse. This is a tuberous begonia that I bought in July. I really love these guys - especially the doubles.
This is the sample that I made to test for Mom's hat. I like the shape of the tardis - the bobble will be bigger and up one row on the real deal. What do you think? Can it be seen well enough?
