Cherry Pi is Blocking!

This morning I blocked my Cherry Pi shawl.

I finished it on Monday and, I have to be honest, I just couldn't see how it was going to work. I thought I had completely messed up the pattern and that I was going to have to rip it back. 

There was much discussion between me and Michelle about this (she is quite lucky as she hasn't finished hers yet do she can learn from my experiences) about my worries and pre-blocking traumas. 

I was so wrong!

This morning I've blocked my shawl and it is magical! I know blocking makes a big difference to your crochet but with the Cherry Pi shawl it is just amazing. Here it is on its first block (this shawl calls for an aggressive block which doesn't mean shouting at it but blocking it a bit further later on!)
