The allure of lace knitting, that is…the magic of blocking….

I luuuurve it.

The boring details:
Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style
Knit with my own handspun (BFL/silk) on US10 needles.
I think I started with a little over 300 yards. Or something like that. DK-ish. I only did 7 body repeats because I was nearing the end of the yarn. And was I ever…I had 3g of yarn left when I was finished!

I did something courageous, too — well, I didn’t have anything to lose, so maybe courageous isn’t the word, but still — I had knit the 8th repeat without moving my lifeline. When I started the edge chart and realized I’d be short, I didn’t want to have to rip back to the 6th repeat, so I carefully ripped ten rows and actually got all the stitches back on the needles. All seventy-billion of them, yarn-overs and everything. Go me.
