There's Good News and ...
The good news is that Escher's Leaves is in the bind off stage. The bad news is that yes, this bind off is rather tedious. It's K2, *slip the stitches back onto the left needle, k2T thru back loops, K1*. So you are manipulating every stitch twice.
But it's a nice, stretcy bind off. In the picture, it looks like it's rolling, but it should block out. When I finger block it, I like the look. And clever, clever designer. She put a pair of YO on either side of each point that aren't balanced by a decrease anywhere. Voila! Instantly pointier points! Even unblocked, they are pointy!
But no lace blocking this weekend. *Sigh*
