Hey!  Saw the pre and post blocking shots on your blog - it totally did make a huge difference in the look of the lace!  If it was me working on that, I would have been discouraged by how closed up the lace looked and frogged it :\  But yours looks awesome!  Wonder if there's anything in the old stash to make one o' those with...  Grin

That looks really pretty! You mentioned on your blog how discouraged you were by the repetitive knitting - I think I'd love something like that. Easy patterns give me something to do during class in between taking notes. Where is the pattern from?

How beautiful.  Your shawl is so lovely.  Blocking does make a world of difference as you demonstrated.  I admire your tenacity.  I have a half finished Fiber Trends Landscape shawl sitting in my drawer--it's not difficult; just a little tedious.  Well done!

Wow! That's a stunning piece of lace!  Grin

Nice work - you should be really proud of that.
