The observant among you may have noticed that in yesterday’s SPA photo of Blogless Sharon, she is wearing a lace shawl. This does not make her unique at SPA. After all, SPA is a showcase of hand knit shawls, sweaters, scarves, mittens, hats and other wooly things. What makes this photo of Sharon unique, however, is that the shawl she is wearing is her first ever lace shawl. And, while I had nothing to do with her succesful execution of the pattern, I did block it for her.
Now, blocking is not one of my favorite things to do. I think it’s a royal pain in the ass, frankly. However, when Sharon – who took spinning lessons with me, who drives me to every fiber event we attend, who hosted Winebeck and Rumbeck with me, who is basically always there for me – asked me to block her shawl, well, I was not about to say no.
And while it was in my possession, I did happen to snap a few photos of it.
