Blocking makes a difference

Remember that curled up cowl? Well, I finally got off my lazy butt and blocked it. Once again the blocking wires made this sooooo much easier and gave me nicer cleaner edges.It took a bit of space to stretch it all out, but the pattern showed so much better after that.
Now instead of just looking curled up on itself, I have a pretty lacy cowl. Totally ready to throw in a drawer because we have another week or more of 100+ degree weather here.
But I know when it does finally cool off, I am going to love having this.
See? Cute!

I might have to make that! I've been drawn to cowls and have some cashmere (Eva's 40% off sale) that I'm gonna make a smaller one with.
