stuck my footsie in there for size comparison
on the blocking board
blocked compared to unblocked.
So it's long, and will get longer with the blocking. And remember how I said blocking it would be a nightmare? Yeah. I'm doing it in stages and can only do maybe an 8 inch segment at a time. I had the moment of "do I really NEED to block this?" but look at that last photo there. Heck yes I do.
So there it is! Now I can focus on my sweater, Tunisian scarf and charity pieces. Although I have an idea for another offensive doily tooling around in my head....
