I would love to see the royal shawl blocked. This would drive me crazy, having three projects waiting to be blocked. Great job.

I figured I might as well wait to block them together, since the main problem I have with blocking is finding a clear space where the dogs won't inadvertently swipe them with their tails... Lol The guest bed is ideal. I've uploaded a photo of the royal shawl (and the other two) all blocked. It's gone to my mother-in-law! Thank you very much.

Isn't the Royal shawl out of this world. I can't even fathom anyone doing work like this. I have trouble counting

I clicked the wrong key. I was saying I couldn't fathom anyone doing work like the Royal shawl. No wonder the lady was tired. Did you read her article?

Thank you very much! I'm just happy my mother-in-law (who has the Royal shawl) and sister (who has the Amber shawl) like them. I've done another for my mum and it's in the post to her right now!
