I hate blocking.
I love knitting lace, but I hate blocking.
From Knitting Traditions Winter 2010 I bring you the Old Shale shawl by Evelyn Clark, done in Jamieson & Smith Shetland wool, fingering weight, I had in stash. It's destined to be a gift, likely for my graduate student who will finish (G-d willing) this May.
I still hate blocking.
