Lace Knitting: An Exercise in Faith
It doesn't look like much yet, but I have to keep reminding myself that it's going to be gorgeous when it's done and blocked! Blocking, for you non-knitters out there, is basically when you finish a project, wet it, pin it out to dry, and stretch out the lace so when it's dry it's nice and open and pretty.
Speaking of blocking, this pattern recommends using blocking wires. I've never used them before, have any of you guys used them? Are they something I need to invest in?
