Finished Object Friday is brought to you by Tami’s Amis and Other Creations.
Finally, I finished the bridesmaid shawl meant for the wedding itself (not a gift shawl)!
This shawl took me a lot longer than it should have simply because I didn’t read the instructions for the bind off before I bound off. It called for doubling the yarn and doing a bind off that was similar but not quite the same as one I’d done before. So of course I didn’t double the yarn and I didn’t do the new bind off correctly, and then the points wouldn’t block into the shawl!
So I painstakingly undid the bindoff and re-bound off properly, and after that it was quite obliging when I went to block it.
Also, you might notice that this is the first blog in which there are pictures of blocking on puzzle mats! I found really cheap mats meant to go under weight equipment, and I just put them bumpy side down. I got two of these for what the price of one set of kid’s play mats usually costs, so that means I have 24 of these bad boys to work with.
