One blue thing deserves another

At long last, I have finished the “Print o’ the Wave.”

I blocked it carefully (isn’t my blocking board attractive?  Portrait of lace project on trash bag on guest bed…”)

Print o' the Wave

I waited patiently.  (Okay, I visited it a few times throughout yesterday).  I unpinned it this morning.  It was very cool to the touch in the chill morning air.

Print o' the Wave - finished

I’m so happy with it, I went ahead and cast on another blue thing…

John's new sweater


  1. Wow, that is so beautiful. Its breathtaking!

  2. Very pretty, very blue, very you!

  3. oooh. aaaah… oooh… That is one gorgeous piece of lace.

    (Did you know you can speed up the drying with a fan set on low? The main thing is to make sure the fan doesn’t riffle the end nearest to it as it dries – but it goes soooo much faster!)

    I look forward to seeing the finished sweater – I thought the pattern in IK was intriguing.

  4. Thanks – I actually have a ceiling fan in that room, and it gets turned on for every blocking adventure.

    Sea silk takes its own sweet time to dry, but the results are worth it.

  5. It’s beautiful! The subtle color shifts in the yarn are just spectacular. What yarn is it? (I’m sure you mentioned it before, but I forget.)

  6. Thanks –

    Appropriately enough, it’s Sea Silk, in the “ocean” colorway.

  7. Wow, that is beautiful! Well done!
