And this lovely bit of business is what happens when you pull up all those pins and see what your blocking has done!
Now, the other fun thing about blocking is you can actually make some pretty big changes in how the finished piece looks. So for example on this one, I could have pinned the whole edge out evenly (instead of pulling out points) and it would have been more of a circle. But I’m a sucker for making points pop on things like this, so that’s the way I went.
I’m sort of suspecting I’m going to write this one up as a tiny little pattern (with some tips on working lace charts and on blocking flared cuffs) and send it out free to folks on my mailing list. I’m not sure when exactly, but probably some time later this summer. If you want a copy when it’s out, you can make that happen here.
