Aleda KAL: Blocking Your Lace

We’re in the final stretch!

A lot of you are already finished knitting your Aleda shawls, and congratulations to you! It’s been a busy month here at Kelbourne Woolens, and I’m still working on my edging. I’ve got a nice long holiday weekend ahead of me, however, and I hope to be blocking my shawl by Memorial Day. 

We are big proponents of blocking, and wet blocking in particular is the best way to get your lace looking it’s best. If you are looking for a bit of direction on how to block effectively, or just need to be convinced that blocking is important, check out our Tips and Tricks Wet Blocking Tutorial.

I am so impressed by the beautiful blocking all of you are doing, and I can’t stress enough how proper blocking improves the overall look of your lace. 

We’ll be doing one final round up of the finished shawls after the holiday weekend, so be sure to post your best finished pic on Instagram with the hashtag #aledakal.

Happy Memorial Day, and happy knitting!
