Julie sent a picture of her newly finished Venezia napkin rings, taken with her camera phone before she wrapped them up to give away! Aren't they pretty? I love them! :)

In other news...guess what this is!

Yes! I blocked the poor, neglected Estonian Garden Shawl! It's not the most perfect blocking job, but it will do very nicely I think. :)

The napkin rings are so very beautiful and fragile looking, what an awesome gift!
And I'm really impressed by the beauty of your shawl - it seems as if you did a real great blocking job and mind you, I can't wait to see it after blocking in all its glory!

Where or on what did you block the gorgeous shawl? I've done bad jobs blocking shawls for lack of space. I read on someone's blog that she tacked her finished shawls to her walls! I don't think I can get away with that, or with asking my family and 2 large dogs not to walk on the carpet in some rooms...

Hi BB - I blocked it on the livingroom floor. *g* Here's the plan: I wait until evening, put the kids to bed, make sure the cat is still in the garage, wash the shawl, pin it out and then sometimes put a table over it. Then, in the morning, I unpin it and fold it up before anyone goes in the room. It only works for shawls, because they dry so fast! Sweaters are another story.

Hooray for you! I'm glad you finished the EG shawl; it looks wonderful. (Insert clapping sounds from a northerly direction).
