And it grew, and grew, and grew…

The wonders of blocking never ceases to amaze me. I’ve been putting off blocking in forever which means that even though I’m not knitting much there are still projects piling up, projects that are only a block away from finished. Since this item needs to be done by May 24, and there is still sewing and knitting cuffs and such, I figured I needed to get down to business. The unblocked piece of lace didn’t look very big and the recipent eyed it sceptically the other day but I assured her it would grow. (I added an A4-paper in the picture for reference.)

I was right. Tonight I blocked it and look, it really has grown. A lot! It was not hard at all to get it into the right measurements and hopefully by next weekend I can take care of the rest. Some finishing, the boring stuff. Hopefully it won’t take too long.
