Orenburg 'Diamond Triangular Shawl'...blocked

Okay, now!! It's blocked!!
It took some doing since I've never, ever blocked a shawl. Matter-of-fact, I never even knit a shawl before this one.
I finished it up in time to wear to my son's prep-high school graduation. It was warm outside, in Arizona, but it was on the cool side in the gym.
I think he was as proud of my shawl as I was of him.
