One Front Done

I finished the right front of my Garter Lace Jacket (a remake of the one that’s in Simple Style). It didn’t look so great off the needles, what with the way the lace edging contracted.

But after a soak in the tub and the help of a couple of blocking wires, it looks right nice!

You’ll notice that I use a striped towel when blocking — the color doesn’t always look so great with the knitting but the stripes help me pin and block things square.
