i just started the "razor shell lace scarf" from the book one skein wonders. i'm using knit picks "shimmer" yarn, lace weight, on size 8 needles. i haven't decided yet if the needles are bigger than i want them to be (i checked on ravelry, i didn't see anyone making this scarf from this yarn, but i saw other lacy scarves from this yarn made with needles anywhere from a 4 to a 7 - and some were definitely tighter than i want mine). would it be weird to block the start of the scarf so i can see what it will look like finished? and then if i decide to frog it and go down to a 7 or 6 would that do anything funny? i've never blocked anything before, though i know things would probably look nicer if i did. blocking just seems like so much work without any of the right stuff. ok, i'm lazy.
thanks in advance!
