More Sneaks

On March 23, 2012, in book, lace, by Anna

Still quiet here.  But the quiet means that I’ve been knitting like crazy.  The shawls for the book are now all complete.  And I’m in the midst of blocking.

Naturally I have to sew in the ends of all the shawls before I block.  No idea why I saved this for the end……  in many ways it makes a lot more sense to finish each shawl entirely as I go.  On the other hand, getting 12 shawls ready for a book takes a long time.  The first one was off the needles last summer.  So if I had blocked it at that time, I’d probably have to reblock it now to get rid of the creases.  Instead, I just seem to be having a never-ending blocking party right now.  :-)

Here are four of the shawls that I was busy sewing in ends on this morning.

It will take me a while to get through the blocking for all the shawls (I can really only block one or maximum two at a time), but by the end of the month they will all be in the mail heading to Cooperative Press and the photoshoot.  Super exciting!
