Ever the Optimist

Blocking this weekend?

I am so optimistic. Remind me how knitted-on edgings mean, even for a small edging like this, say, 12 to 18 stitches knit for each one of the original shawl to bind off.

I am actually on the last few rows, but knowing full well that blocking is not the work of a moment… I don’t think I’ll be blocking tonight. Work does comes quite early in the morning.

By the way, I like Lanafactrix’s suggestion: Bold Edging for the edging! You’ll see the shawl — with its edging — in its fully blocked glory soon; I think I’ll be blocking Tuesday.

  1. Oh, it’s just beautiful! I love the yarn color and your added on edging!

  2. As they say, if you’re going to knit, knit boldly! And have an edging to match.
