I just got finished blocking the brown shawl. Whew! It takes up the entire top of the king-size bed. The brown center is 50 inches across and the border is 14 inches.
I let it soak a few minutes in some Eucalan and spun it out in the washer. It took me half an hour to pin it out using a yard stick for a guide. I can hardly wait for it to dry. I turned on the ceiling fan to speed things up so it won't be long....which will be nice since we have another cold front coming this way tomorrow according to the local weather report.
Since we don't have carpet, the next best thing is to use the bed and by moving it out from the wall (it's on wheels) I can get all the way around it without reaching too far in any direction.
