Well, my first venture into lace charting has turned out pretty well, despite my lack of blocking (physical) ability. It can be frustrating to know what SHOULD be done to create the best possible outcome and be physically unable to accomplish it. Still. It will be warm, and it will look better once it is dry and being worn.
The important thing is that I was successful in charting an accurate lace pattern (one adapted from an old one I found in Weldon's). The blocked dimensions are 32 inches down the center, and about 65 inches wide from wingtip to wingtip.
Although it is hard to tell from the photos, the lace along the top looks quite nice, and will act like a collar. First nice day outside and we can take some photos.
