Whee! It's my Lilly-of-the-Valley Shawl from Lace Style.

Here, you can actually see the "nubs" that are the flowers in the pattern. I'm not sure if it's the trickiest lace I've tried - certainly, getting the nubs so they worked quickly was a trip - but it's going smoothly now. I'm up from two rows in fifteen minutes to two rows in five, and it promises to get faster once I can actually figure the pattern as I go.

This is going to be the first thing I've knitted, though, that will actually require "blocking". I'm not sure how I'm going to manage that, since I no longer have carpets, and while my mother has a blocking board, it's sweater-sized. Can you block half a shawl at a time?

  1. Gosh, those nubs look just like tiny little flowers, just perfect.

    I will probably have to do my blocking half at a time...if it works, hurray, if not, hmmm, not sure what I'll do.
