FO: Rainbow Shawl

It's done! And blocked! (though I know it could have been blocked better) But it's blocked!

Here's before blocking:

On the blocking boards:

I bought the alphabet foam set for $5 on Craigslist for the purpose of blocking. Best $5 ever. Cheapest blocking board ever- and the size can be adjusted for whatever you're blocking. It's perfect.

Post blocking.

It's a little over 5 feet across the top- like 5'3" or something like that. This Friday is the day I have to take it to the county fair for judging. I hope I do well!

How beautiful!! You are so talented. And thanks for the new use for the play foam pieces my husband HAD to get at Ross!! If I ever learn to knit, I'll be using them for blocking!
