I just blocked my first lace project - a Swallowtail Shawl for my grandmother for Christmas. It's in Malabrigo Laceweight...mmm...and let me tell you, it's pretty incredible what blocking will do!

Lovely shawl, beautiful color. I saw it today in a shop, it seemed kind of luminescent. Maybe a trick of the shop lights, but it sure was pretty.

Grandma is sure to be pleased!
