Lace Blocking Virgin

Blocking Kernel
I’ve already told you my approach for doing lace. Well I finally finished my first lace piece, and it’s now blocking.

Blocking Kernel
I purchased lace blocking wires from KnitPicks last month, and while simple in concept, I’ve never used anything like them before and I am not sure if I inserted them the best way.

Blocking Kernel
The Kernel scarf has an edging of 3 knit stitches on each side. I used this edge to hold the wires. The scarf is longer than a single wire, so I had to use 2 on each side.

Blocking Kernel
The ends have slight points, but I didn’t take pictures of them. I inserted a pin in each point to pull it down and exaggerate it.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the finished pictures!
