Bamboo lace chevrons

I’ve finally finished the bamboo lace chevron scarf I started last summer.  When I went to block it I found out that bamboo is a type of viscose and acts just like viscose when wet.  It becomes hard and stiff.  I blocked it quite hard knowing that viscose  is tight and shrinks a bit when wet.

The result was a scarf the same size as when it was dry.  I’m happy to say that it dried beautifully soft and drapy, nothing like what it was when wet.
