Anticlimactic

In the not-so wee hours of a dreary, rainy Sunday, a lone knitter and her cup of coffee bound off a single stitch.

And Maude was complete.

She waited a day to block it, and then managed to totally screw things up. Maude, blocked, is gargantuan. That said, I have only a lone picture to show.

Close-up of the lace:



Because you see, Maude had to be blocked doubled over on herself, she was so big when wet (that should have been a HUGE hint). Maybe I should have just left her alone and not worried about showing off the lacy edge to Jenn tomorrow at work. 'Cause when I came home tonight, ran upstairs and unpinned her, draped her over my shoulders and looked down, I realized that her ever-so-graceful arms were dragging. the. floor.

I have to go back to the blocking board tonight (maybe I shouldn't have pinned, but rather just laid her out to dry).

Has anyone else had a problem with a huge Maude?

The lace is lovely! I can't wait to get started. Maybe I'll go down a needle size when my yarn arrives on Friday since your Maude got so big.
