It was a relatively slow week on the work front, so I was able to snatch a couple hours here and there as I waited for projects to come in. As a result, I was binding off and blocking by Friday evening.
A while back, Mom gave me her blocking wires, but I hadn't tried them out yet. While they are a pain to insert, they really made getting that nice straight edge so much easier.
The lace opened right up, just like I knew it would, making this shawl a respectable 64 inches long. You can't really see the beads with the camera flash, but they are there.
A proper FO post will follow - probably sometime in early July. I think this beauty deserves a proper photoshoot, and for that I need Mom.
