Those pins can only mean one thing. The first project of 2019 is off the needles and is currently being wet blocked. I’d usually hope that a 4-ply lace object would dry overnight, but with the cold, damp weather we’ve been experiencing recently it may be a day or two longer. I’m really looking forward to freeing this first large lace project from it’s hundreds of Lillipution pins and metres of rope-like embroidery floss, regimenting the stitches until they dry and set in place.
I am now going to bask in the great sense of achievement in signing off the first (of hopefully many) F/Os of the year, and striking one box off my list of WIPs.
