It's Finished!!!!

I finished knitting the Adamas Shawl!!!

It looks like a mess! Of course this is because it’s not blocked. I understand that… and I'm planning on blocking it tonight... I bought a blocking board from Jo Anne’s (it was only $15 and I had a 40% off coupon! Score!) and I’m going to try to buy some wires tonight from Catans… any metal wires will do, right? Is there anything special I need to know for blocking something this big or for blocking lace?

Also I finally finished and wove in the ends and everything on the big purple bag. The pattern is basically the Sentimental Stripes Tote pattern from KDK’s blog. It’s a good pattern it just took me forever because I kept getting distracted. The yarn is patons merino and random stripes of my grandma’s hand dyed wool. I hope it felts ok!

And thanks for all of the nice comments on the salsa garden!


  1. Congrats on finishing your Adamas! Can't wait to see it blocked! I'm right behind ya...

    Love the bag, btw. :)

  2. I covet your blocking board. :) And wires come to think of it. Not that I need them - I'm so stalled on lace right now I shouldn't even think about blocking products. ;)

  3. Excellent!!! Happy blocking. Lace blocking is pure magic.
