lace on bella is finito! now, it’s just blocking.
and since i don’t have a ginormous blocking surface, i’m blocking 1/2 of it at a time on my ironing board (which is orange, natch)
and this is why we block, especially lace:
it’s like a grape next to a raisin, except raisin is its natural state, not grape.
anyhow, while this is drying, and then drying again on the other side, i’m going to start a hat as a giftie (since my yarn for my other gifties — 2 shawls, a pair of socks, and a jumper — hasn’t arrived yet from knitpicks)
