Finally finished my shawl for the cruise, but I need some suggestions. I don't have blocking boards and pins, usually use towels to block, but this thing as you can see is very long. Do you think I could fold it in half and block it or should I block it sections at a time???

That's so pretty!

I think I'd get a couple large towels and spread it on the floor in a room where a pet won't bother it.

The shawl is beautiful! Love the colorway! I agree with Jan on how to block it.

Oh, you are definitely going to be the best dressed on this cruise, no doubt about it. Exquisite work and finished in time!
I like Jan's suggestion for blocking too.

That is so beautiful, Nonny. Love the colors, too!

I use towels and straight pens to block my stuff, but I also have these long pieces of styrofoam from when we got a new refrigerator, so I sometimes use them for blocking boards.

That's lovely! I used towels to block before I ordered some interlocking rubber tiles. The tiles work very well because you can create the shape that you need. Still, I don't have enough tiles for unusually large projects like afghans and large shawls. I've never tried folding a project in half, but then you would have to deal with the crease in the middle.

Have a wonderful time on your cruise!

I sure do love this trellis shawl! It looks nice even before blocking!
