More blocking and answering a question

I have my Pavonia Shawl blocking today. Pavonia was published in the same issue of Knitcircus as my Rosie Socks. The original pattern was knit in laceweight Malabrigo, and measured 54 inches. I am much larger than that so I went big and did mine in some worsted that Lynnie dyed and gave me. Serendipitously, it was exactly the right amount to finish the shawl :-}
I began last night, and did the second portion this morning (had to re-moisten the reserved part that did not fit on the blocking table).
In answer to the question about the scribble photo in yesterday's post, it was part of some sidewalk graffiti (see photo above). There were also unpleasant things on the same 'canvas' but this one was extra beautiful, I thought.
