Old Shale Shawl, aka I Hate Blocking

I hate blocking.

I love knitting lace, but I hate blocking.

From Knitting Traditions Winter 2010 I bring you the Old Shale shawl by Evelyn Clark, done in Jamieson & Smith Shetland wool, fingering weight, I had in stash. It's destined to be a gift, likely for my graduate student who will finish (G-d willing) this May.

Wow! I think I would have paid someone a kid to set all those pins.

I don't hate blocking but it's up there on my least loved tasks. It's easier with wires.
