Block Party


The Magrathea Shawl is finally finished, and I’m so happy with it.  I am so hopeful that it will bring tons of comfort to my mother-in-law in the coming months.

I recently read the Yarn Harlot’s post on blocking, which came handy.  She reminded me that the blocking isn’t about pulling the fabric into the shape you want, but rather gently pushing into place.  I was much less aggressive pinning this down as I have been with some projects, and it seemed to removed the need to use blocking wires.  So far, I’m happy with the results.
