Blocking Fun

I finished up my lace ribbon scarf yesterday. My bind offs are usually pretty tight, so here I tried an SSK bind off, which I've never done before. It looks pretty nice, though it's almost a bit too loose. The scarf is on the blocking board right now -- I've got it all pinned out to 10'' by 60'' and I think the lace looks really nice.

My board wasn't quite long enough, so my friendly bath towel stepped in to help. Hopefully it won't leave a funny bump in the last foot of the scarf.

  2. I really want to unpin it and try it on! It seems dry, but I think the prudent thing to do would be to wait at least 24 hours. You totally need to block yours!!
