Magic Tricks with Wires, Pins, and Frames with Denise Bell
Every lace shawl knitter talks about the "magic" of blocking.
Turning a puddle of finished lace knitting into a striking shawl takes more than just the waving of a magic wand. It also takes tools and attention to detail.
In this class we will look at typical shawl shapes and discuss how to use blocking wires, pins, rulers, foam mats, a towel, and a yard stick to stretch and pin them for maximum jaw-dropping lace effect.
A variety of shawls will be on hand but students are welcome to bring an additional lace shawl to facilitate discussion and demonstration.
