Summer Plums

I blocked the Shetland Triangle. It grew. It "bloomed". Blocking really brings out the pattern and makes it look like a completely different animal. Blocking lace is a pain, and I wish I really knew what I was doing. But it turned out okay.

I decided that I didn't want the points as pointy as the pattern. I also didn't bind off loose enough to get it that pointy, and I bound off as loose as I could. I should switch needles next time.


I love this color, a deep plummy purple, but it photographs different each time.
My swimmers!
