Spring Fling Wrap – finished at last!

I finished my Spring Fling Wrap last night, and it turned out beautifully.

I always think it’s amazing how a lace transforms from an ugly  bit of knitting that looks tangled and deformed to something lovely once it’s blocked.  (Blocking is when you soak your knitting in water, then stretch it into shape and force it to dry that way).

Some before and after pictures:

After I soaked it for a few minutes – still looking pretty ugly.

Half way through blocking – you can see the pins and how it has been stretched.

Fully blocked – now it just has to dry.

The finished project!  You can see it has kept its shape and is nicely drapey.

I’m really happy with this wrap, and excited to use it in the future.  Unfortunately, with temperatures reaching almost 100 today, I don’t think I’m going to need a wool wrap anytime soon.

Once again, this is the Spring Fling Wrap from the KnitPicks Independent Designer program, knit in Knit Picks Shadow Kettle Dyed yarn in Altitude.  (I’m not linking this yarn because it is being discontinued).  If you want a similar look from the same yarn line, Shadow Tonal in Blue Yonder would be the closest.
