Oh, the magic of blocking. In the previous post I showed how teeny tiny this was when it came off the needles…it barely covered Bluebird’s shoulders. But, after blocking, it easily covers her armspan. Lace is so weird that way.
So now I will wrap this little beauty up and send it on its merry way up north to the bride-to-be. (This seems rather anti-climatic, given the amount of energy and thought that has been wrapped up in this project over the past few months!)
I’m so badly bitten by the lace bug. Nothing else seems remotely interesting besides lace! I like knitting nupps (the little balls) a lot…I think they’re rather pretty in the design.
I’m very happy with how this turned out! I hope Carly is pleased with it as well and that, should the weather require its use, it looks beautiful with her wedding dress. It makes me so happy to have rendered this little bit of knitting service to my future sister-in-law! Wear it often, wear it boldly!
