Gorgeous! I'm working on my first lace shawl and I'm anxious anout blocking it. Looks like you used some preschool foam puzzle floor mats. Any other tips or tricks to share?

Hi there! Yeah, I sure did! I highly recommend blocking wires as a good investment if you're going to be doing lots of shawls -- they help you get a straight edge. You can also thread some string through the edges and pull it taut. Don't be afraid to block aggressively and really stretch it into shape if that's what it needs because that's when the pattern really shows.

And good luck! I love lace shawls, they're so much fun. Blocking isn't as scary as it sounds once you try it!
