Finished this little
Comes all packaged up in this cute little carrying case... a group of puzzle-like pieces to block your finished knitting projects. Blocking is to knitting as prepping is to painting... as far as outcome goes (though on the opposite ends of the processes).
I love seeing how the lace patterns open up once you have wet your project and 'staked it out' on the block. I do think I am going to need another package though... I can see I might need a bigger space!
Even came with its own little tin of t-pins. Love it!
This one was the last one for 2011. I'll be doing a knitting review of the whole year in the next couple of days.
This was the next to last project, just barely finished in time to get wrapped for Kathy's birthday present. I made her one just like my own Sirdar Waistcoat, made about this time last year. I'm on the hunt for the next project!!
- You can find the blocking pads here along with a tutorial about blocking.
- Shawl pattern is: 198 Yards of Heaven by Christy Verity, a free download on Ravelry. (I did an extra 21 row repeat of the body to increase the size)
- Yarn: Lustra by Berroco-- 50% Peruvian Wool 50% Tencel (1.5 skeins)
