FO: Japanese Feather Shawl
It's all done, drying on the blocking board! My notes here.

Dollyce,
What do you use for your blocking board? I like that it looks like yours is a big set of puzzle pieces so you can use only what you need. I've been avoiding making anything that needs blocking until I have somewhere to block it. (You try finding clear floor space in a house with every family member for four generations under one roof!) But what you're using looks like it could be perfect for me. (Maybe I could put it up on one of my bedroom walls?)

Exactly! They are Knitpicks Blocking Mats. I have a set of two. I found that long things like scarves and shawls usually need more. I love them!

These blocking squares (that can be pieced together in many configurations) are from Knitpicks.com. I bought two sets. They are very affordable! I use them all the time!
