There’s really no other way to describe the difference between blocked and unblocked lace. Before you say anything, no- the shawl isn’t finished, in fact I’m only 6 rows past where I was on Sunday, but I took a photo of the scrunched mess that is unblocked lace, and thought it would be neat to show you that picture next to a pinned-out photo I took previously.

Here is how it looks right now, on my needles.

GarglemeshBit like a dog’s breakfast. A shiny, beaded dog’s breakfast, but still. Not what you might call “pretty”.

Here, on the other hand, is what it looks like with a bit of stretching and pinning…

Lace!See?

Magic.

S’all I’m sayin’.
