Okay! The shawl is finally blocked! As per Cinzia's request, here are some pictures of the Aeolian Shawl all finished. Usually I soak the entire knitted project in water before I lay it flat, but given how "fragile" this yarn already was with all those beads, I decided to lay it flat, pin it, then wet it with a spray bottle. It worked out very well.
Not as big as I had hope, but oh well :)
Love these beads!
I decided not to block the edge and left it ruffly.
YAY!!!!!! It feels so good to have this project all finished!
