Before I get to that, it’s 56 degrees here today. In August. Our furnace came on this morning and John looked at me suspiciously and asked, “did you turn that on?”
No dear, it’s just fracking cold here.
The lace is done, ends woven in, and it went for a swim this morning. As I’ve said before, I believe in full-immersion blocking. Besides, this one went down the Green River and the Colorado River, and needed a bath.
I use Kookaburra wool wash, and soaked this for about half an hour, then rinsed. I’ve used both the regular and the delicate versions of this product, and really can’t tell much difference.
Ready for the pinning ceremony:
I used a combination of blocking wires for the straight top edge, and pins for the side points.
Yes, that’s a lot of pins. It would be even more ridiculous without the wires on the top edge.
I’m going to find a wool sweater to wear. Project details and the requisite artsy photo when it’s dry.
