I finished up the knitting and wove in the ends last night, but put off blocking until this morning. When blocking fingering weight I don't get as aggressive as I do with lace weight. I noticed with this pattern that the ribbing in the last couple of clues tended to pull the shawl in more than the first couple of clues did, so I knew that the width would be set by the ends rather than the middle. As I laid out the wet shawl I gently pulled it into shape being careful to not stretch it so much that the pins along the edges caused a scalloping effect. I like to keep the edges as straight as possible. Once all the edges were pinned out I pinned out the ends. Here is a close up of one of the ends so you can see the beads.
