Oh yeah!

I treated myself to lace blocking wires which I got on ebay for about 5 bucks less than anywhere else and the mailing tube doubles as a storage container so whoopee for me! Gotta say, while the wires aren't magic, they are as close as you're gonna get. Waaaaaaaaayyyyyy easier than just pinning. way.
I splurged on them because I was knitting lace for my ISE4 pal who's scarf broke my wires cherry (potty mouth Tracy, potty mouth). I also bought some super yummy green lace yarn at Stitches East, as well as some cashmere yarn at School Products when I went on the city excursion to the knitting and lace show with my knitting gal pals. There's a lot I plan to use these bad boys for and I figured I could put off buying them and 2 or 3 projects in, cave and curse myself for not buying them sooner, or I could just save myself the grief for once and jump straight to the end result and buy the damn things!
Wires in use - well I haven't pinned it down yet but you can already see how great they work.

I likey this scarf for me. I think I see one in my future ;-)

Thank you ladies! Lurk away Rhia, I'd like to check out your blog too but you're set to private. Are you in the witness protection program? If so it's ok, don't say yes ;-)
