I thought a lot about blocking the Terra shawl over the past week. A few times I got as far as wondering where my blocking board had gone, or where my blocking wires had gone. Once I even got as far as looking in the shed. A few times I wondered at the trustworthiness of a vague memory of chucking the lot in one of my tidying sprees.
I leave for Tokyo in less than a week and I’d like to bring this shawl with me, so tonight in my desperation I gave it a wash and pinned it to a rag rug in our bedroom.
Oh, Blossom. I can always count on her to do exactly this.
