Hemlock Ring Throw

Hemlock Ring Throw

Amazing, isn't it? It never ever fails to delight me the way lace knitting opens up like a spring flower once it's blocked. Every yarn-over and all the detail suddenly comes to light (and a white beach towel underneath always helps, too!

It took about an hour to thread the wires and stick the pins. I had to use all of my blocking mats and employ a rather large cork board from my closet in order to make a space large enough to pin this mutha out...and as you can tell, it still wasn't as well-pinned as I would have liked. C'est la vie...

I'm off to the gym to celebrate the near finish of a very long project. Odd...I never thought the gym would be a celebratory place for me. How things change...
