Citron Complete...

Well, I did it.   I finished the Citron shawl in time for a friend's birthday party tonight (which we will not make because we are all sick and a virus is a lousy birthday present).    This is the first time I have wet blocked anything (Usually, I just steam the suckers into submission).   Wow, this is hard work.    I was going to unpin it now-ish but since plans have changed, I will let it go overnight.   One of the tutorials I watched/read said that lace needs to be blocked beyond when it first begins to feel dry.    With future lace knitting projects in mind, I will have to place a KnitPicks order sometime soon for blocking mats and pins.  It makes me nervous to have that many quilting pins in my carpet.
