Leaf Lace Shawl…

Done at last!  Friday night I got busy and blocked my shawl.  I’m so pleased with it.  I wish I had made the large shawl now instead of the small one.  For my first shawl I think it turned out pretty well.  I wasn’t real sure about how much to stretch it.

I think in some places it could have been stretched more, or maybe not.

I used T-pins, and towels on the kitchen table.
