It is often said that lace knitting in it's unblocked state, looks like nothing more than overcooked pasta. Mine looks more like scrambled eggs. It's actually "Omelet" from knitty.com. It's been over a year, and it's been cast off, washed, and shook out. I will get around to steaming the points (I don't want the whole shawl to grow) on a day when it's not already steaming here.
