Good intro to lace knitting. I made this shawl for a friend and it was my first lace project AND first time blocking. Very easy to knit and will knit again!

Q&A with rguzman110153885178993197

Nancy Cin asked:
Once the shawl is blocked, does it hold its shape? Does the cotton yarn hold its blocking as well as wool?
rguzman110153885178993197 answered:
It did for me. Once I blocked it, I was able to really open up the lace and emphasize the picot bind-off. I left it to dry for about 2 days and didn't touch once I put it out. I then gave it to a friend as a birthday gift. She hasn't had any issues with it so far.
