Man Shawl Blocking

So it is done and now is being blocked. One of the things that you need to learn when making a lace project is that the knit up garment is not what you are going to end up with. Therefore when I designed this pattern I was thinking of the end product, after being blocked. This Shawl has some interesting designs that when you block it makes all the sense in the world, A friend asked me why did 'nt I do this or that or follow the same ribbing at the areas where I have the seed stitch. I told my friend that is not what I wanted to do. I did not want to tell her that my designed would have looked different when blocked if I did the garment in the way she suggested, yet if I was going to leave this garment unblocked, I would have followed the suggestion from my friend.  you can see the difference between it being blocked and not  when you compare both these pictures. Thanks for stopping by.
