thanks for all the commiseration and advice! I promise I won't iron it, I was pretty sure it would melt, so I thought I'd ask first.
Here's the finished project (haven't weaved in ends yet) in Simply Soft (greyer than in photo):

Here is what I was talking about the squiggles. I guess there is nothing I can do about it, but as you can see they are different from the squiggles on the rest of my scarf:

Not a huge deal, I'm just not really sure how it happened. Now that I've sat with it a few days I'm less sullen and once I weave in the ends I'll take it out on the town.

whoo hoo, i'm finally done...

This is my first lace and my first blocking (that is why the blocking is so sloppy ; )

It's hard to tell in the photo, but it is more of a reddish brown (brunette) color. It is knitpicks Elegance in Redwood on size 8 needles.

I was surprised that when I immersed it in cool water to start blocking, there was a pretty strong and not so pleasant smell. Is this normal? I'm sure it will go away when it dries, but it was not a nice surprise.

Anyway, glad it's over but I'd do it again.

yay everyone! i just started last week, and haven't had alot of time to work, but i'm picking it up today to help me procrastinate other stuff. i'm using knitpicks Elegance in Redwood (i'm a poor grad student), which is 70% Baby Alpaca, 30% silk and i think fingering weight.

here is the beginning:

it's more 'brunette' than it looks in the photo and also the pattern is even (couldn't stretch it and take the photo). i figure i have at least a month left to work on it since it's not going to be a warm scarf and it stays cold in boston forever. can't wait for spring! also, this will be the first piece i'll ever block and i'm really excited about the process!
