5/30: Finally got puzzle mats to block on, and blocked! Came out much better this time. It measures out to about 48” x 23”.

5/8: Fixed the bind off. Need to reblock. fingers crossed - hope the points stay in this time!

5/6: Finally undid the bind off. Make sure you do it as written or you won’t get the pretty spikes on the edges when you block it. I didn’t hold my yarn double; shame on me! I wish I had because undoing a bindoff that had been set for a few months really sucked.

2/23: I’m on the edging now. I had to put it down for a weekend to do a pair of gloves, and I had also done a few winter things too.

The two-sided lace was torturous but the results are fabulous. I’m pretty pleased with it. Hoping it didn’t come out smaller than Stef’s did.

1/17: Chart A is finished. It’s an easy chart, but pretty tedious. I’m glad it’s over. Now it’s on to chart B, which is interesting in that it’s a true lace with pattern on both sides. I dig that I don’t have to worry about re-interpreting the symbols for the back since it’s in garter.

1/15: Doing the garter stitch version. This is going to be a bridesmaid shawl for my wedding! =D Two of my other bridesmaids are making the rest so I can do my veil and the bridesmaid gifts.
