Aeolian, Part II

I have completed the eighteen row Transition chart:

Not much of a difference from the previous photo, I know. Lace doesn't really look like much of anything until you block it. Non-knitters: blocking is soaking a finished item in water, stretching it into shape, and then pinning it so it will retain that shape when dry. When lace is blocked, all of the holes open up, the lumpiness vanishes, and you end up with a very thin, lightweight fabric that is surprisingly toasty.

It took me about five minutes to get this picture taken. Someone kept rolling on it in an effort to get me to pet her.
