cotton laceweight?
I found some goooorgeous laceweight in 100% 10/2 cotton. Would this be hard to block, especially if I were to make a lace pattern with it? It's so pretty, but if it won't block well it seems silly to buy it. Opinions? Thanks!!

In the market for Custom Software Development? Have a Security matter that needs addressing? Please check out my husband's company:

I think it would probably block, though I don't know for sure. Best way to find out is to swatch and see! However, a lot of crochet doilies are done with cotton thread, so I would imagine that they have to block somehow!
On the needles: Falling Leaves Socks, Punkin Hats, Artful Afgan and another waterlily for a friend of mine (on hold until I feel like working with that yarn again)

In the queue:
Jack Skellington baby afghan
