Blocking Day/ Test Knitting Part 2

So, I acheived my goal of finishing the 2in ribbing section of my test knitting pattern. Yay! Now I get to start on the interesting part which is all the intricate cables.

I also decided that today would be a good day to block all of my projects. It went pretty well. I am amazed how much the lace really changes in the blocking. It went from being a kinda pretty wad of string to being quite stunning.

It was hard to get the color to look right in the pictures. Here is the shawl on the blocking wires all stretched out.

These are of some of the details on the shawl:

I also blocked out a lace choker and my first sock.
