now for the knitting (somewhat):
i finally finished this great looking latch hook rug...and used iron-on binding which actually adhered:


and now for the show!!

a scrunchy merino blob!


ahhh! wool floating atop warm water bath!


it made noises like rice krispies in milk...all the water bubbling in and hehe. 'twas fun to push it under. drown!


odd picture...but it warmed my cold toes to stomp all the water out


ta-da!! it is a tiny bit smaller on this end closest to you...but hey, it's all good.

i used Harlot's Walk Around the Block Tutorial. i used fishing line in each side before washing it, then pinned it out...haven't ever blocked lace before, but i know this helped with straight edges

and...a close-up to come once dry! didn't measure pre-blocking, but it was just a blob anyway.

YAY FOR FINISHED LACE!!!
