After a few weeks of being tossed over a chair, I finally blocked my Flower Basket Shawl last Sunday. Since this was my very first lace shawl, I decided to record the process for posterity.
Salad Spinner dry (glad to finally put my kitchen tools to good use):
Blocking on the Bed. (This little maneuver got someone kicked out of the bedroom):
Drying in the afternoon sun:
Not a very elegant shot, but the blocked shawl in full glory (Agan, Mika pulls a Ripple):

This was knit in dk weight yarn. It was a good practice shawl and I believe I'm ready for a lace-weight project now.
p.s. I don't know what's going on with my blogger template other than blogger seems to hate me right now, won't let me switch to the new blogger and now my template's a bit jacked. sigh.
