Actually, I knew it all along, but it became evident when I came home and looked at my Fundamentally Faroese Shawl that was dry. What was really driven home, was that I don't really have a clue as to how to use blocking wires and T-pins to block a shawl.
What is not seen in the picture below is what it looked like when I took one side off of the wires and pins. It was grossly midshapen and had scallops running down one side. The top wasn't so hot either.
I just kind of tossed it all on the table and went to bed and looked at it with fresh eyes this morning AND armed with my Ipad and YouTube, I searched on blocking shawls with wires and came up with a great video. Almost in the first few minutes, what did the video say to me?
Be sure to run the wires in as many stitches as you can, other wise, you may get undesirable scalloping?!
I kind of want to start another Faroese shawl, but not ready to cast on all of those stitches yet.
