365.6: less-than-aggressive blocking

Swallowtail is blocking. I love the yarn, noro sock, and I love the pattern, Interweave's Swallowtail Shawl. However, when I put the two together, it seems like something is a bit lacking. I should have guessed that a busy yarn with a busy pattern wouldn't work out so well. Oops. Not to mention that it didn't grow as much as I'd hoped. No matter, I was hoping it would be a funky winter scarf anyway.

Never mind that I'm kind of lazy about blocking, and all those little peaks were crazy-making. Nor do I bother to get out a T-square and make the damn thing perfect... I promise you all some action shots soon!
