Prelude to the Un Pinning

Sorry folks, I promise. Unpinned photos soon - for now you get to look at crinkly bits...I have to reiterate my amazement at the lace blocking process - the tiles on the floor are 12 inch tiles - so the moth, at rest, unblocked is somewhere close to 5 feet across the wingspan....blocked, I believe she is close to 8 feet across!

I love these bumps - they are actually the backside of the moth - backside of the fir cone lace portion, that is. Note their halo - that would be the high angora content showing itself :) This is going to be one heck of a warm shawl, I suspect!
