I found myself on Saturday morning with just enough time to soak & block a shawl before running off to meet Annie for lunch.
I used three blocking wires, threading one down the center of the shawl, and the other two at the top. I folded the shawl in half, anchored the sides with the wires, and pulled out and pinned the points.
For one thing, it's a big shawl and wouldn't fit on my Block 'n Roll mat; for another, it's arguably a little less work this way; and, lastly, both sides turn out the same!

Rusty took the glamorous FO photos modeled by yours truly. (Dirty garage door!)
Isn't it a beautiful design? I love it. Here's another photo…
