How to make a knitter crazy. In 3 steps.
Step 1: Give her something really lacy, pretty, and rectangular to block and the desire to block it right now.

Pattern: Falling Water Lace Scarf
Needles: Size 7, Knitpicks Options
Yarn: Crystal Palace Kid Merino that my grandma gave me for Christmas.
And a few more shots of it finished and off the blocking board:
Lace knitting is so fun!
