After pinning out the points of the shawl, (see previous post) I went back to see whether the points were in line with the row of flower baskets. You will see what I mean in the following photos. In the above photo, you can see that the line of the single stitch ubove the yellow pin head is crooked.
Here you can see that I straightened it out by removing the pin and moving the point so that it is in line with the single stitch.
I think I have all straight lines now!
Well, you can see that the flower basket shall will be a thing of beauty once it is done. I failed to take a photo of the last step in blocking at my house. I covered the shawl with the second half of the sheet! My cat likes to sit on the item being blocked and removes the pins!! That could be disastrous for a lace shawl! It will take a bit longer for the shawl to dry, but it's easier to cover the shawl than to keep the cat out of the living room!
Next post will be the dry, completed shawl!!
