Relax!

Many thanks to everyone who left encouraging comments regarding my worries about the Logan River Wrap. I took Opal’s advice, “block the living hell out of it,” to heart and did exactly that.

The result? See for yourself.

Yeah, these pictures suck. But the point is that you can see the stole streeetches out. About 74 inches. (I took these pictures while taking a break, and fixed the crooked parts afterwards.)

Now I want it to hurry up and dry already. : )

    Yeah, unfortunately, most lace looks like crap until you black the buggers right out of it. Looks great though! Love the new layout btw.
