Needs Blocking Too

I am working away on the hairpin lace shawl. Really. I want to have it done by September. I was looking at it and realized something. Knitted lace needs to be blocked to look it's best. So does crocheted lace. Really. Look at this

That represents 3 strips of hairpin lace joined up plus about half of the fourth strip. Then I need to join the border strip. Which is as long as the other 4 put together. I'd better get a move on...
