The magical step

Did you know that when you finish knitting your shawl, you can give it a quick bath and then pin it out for blocking, and it changes from being a lump of yarn into being an actual lace shawl?


It’s true. It works every time.


You just can’t make this stuff up.


(Lamplight shawl. Full pattern details coming soon.)

    I may have left a similar comment at another time, but I just calls ’em as I sees ’em.

    Wonderful Glenna, I can hardly wait to get some details..I have a yarn just waiting to be this shawl..

    The magic step I really need, though, is the one that gets me from skeined yarn to big lump of knitting! 😉

  29. Is this pattern going to be free? I’m considering saving my most recently purchased beautiful lace for this project….

  30. I’ll gear this review to two types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, the ones attempting to decide between a Zune and a music player. (There are more players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I really hope thus giving you sufficient info to make the best decision of the Zune vs players other than ipod and iphone line as well.)
