Creative Space: Blocking Lace

This is me blocking the lace scarf "Ulla's Scarf" from Nancy Bush. I put lots of pins in it then prompty took them all out again and just kept pushing and pulling it into place.I used two fairly fluffy towels on the kitchen table.

I really love the pattern in this scarf. It is the lily-of-the-valley pattern.

 Now I can get to starting the Lilac Leaves Shawl from the new book "knitted Lace of Estonia" by Nancy Bush! I'm going to buy some yarn online today in a sage green, 2ply merino wool for it! I'm so excited! It took me days to decide which pattern to do (Hubby and kids were not very helpful in deciding on a pattern!). I finally decided on the lilac leaves after choosing the yarn!


  1. I'm so pleased I'm not the only one who uses the kitchen table and towels to block my knitting. The scarf is looking stunning.

  2. Oooh that lily of the valley is really lovely.

  3. I agree the lace is beautiful
