Tomorrow after work, I head west to Sapphire Valley and the Carolina Fiber Frolic. I've been getting some things I finished a while ago blocked to take for "show and tell".
First I washed and blocked my Find Your Fade shawl, although blocking in this case just meant laying it out to dry without really stretching it, because it was already huge enough!

And last in the just needed to be blocked category is the Moroccan Days/Arabian Nights shawl I finally finished at the end of 2016. This is also a giant shawl, but I finally took the time to pin it out. I couldn't figure out how to get a really good picture of this, and there are beads, but they are very similar in color to the yarn, so they're subtle, which is what I wanted.
As for the projects I was trying to finish in time for Frolic, the Cayambe is finished.
But the Sweet Chilly sweater is not. I only have one sleeve and the neckline to do, so I'm hoping I can finish it up by Friday in time to give it a steam with the hotel iron Friday night and enter it in the "what I made with my door prize" contest on Saturday.
