I finished the shawl in October 2007 and finally blocked it May 2008. I like the waffles the stitch pattern made and did not want to block them out. I did not apply too much tension when blocking barely enough to open the lace but not so that it would loose texture. The end result is almost what I wanted.
Pattern by Anne Hanson Yarn: My Handspun Indigo Dyed Corridale. The roving was dyed at the Wasatch Woolpack Park City Retreat July, 2006 Aprox 1200 yds Needles: US 6
I like the color variation, it blends in but does not strike or pool.
