final shawl shoot

The shawl came off the blocking board this morning, and it came with me on my morning walk.  After the scary experience in blocking the Cash Iroha sweater with the silk (which I'm still not showing off), I blocked this by pinning and steaming with the iron.  I stayed 1-2" off the fabric, and it worked quite well.  

Except for that completely different colored skein thing.

So enjoy the tulips!  I'm off to my first spinning class now.  ;)

Those tulips are AMAZING. I love them!
And of course, your shawl is notably pretty too.
Hope you're staying warm and dry in Portland.
