The Wonders of Blocking

From this to this

  Blocking truly amazes me everytime I block a project. What looks blobbish and undefined is magically transformed into something quite nice or even quite spectacular. I often think to myself-wow I didn't know it was going to look this good, mind you I am also nervous some critical or really bad mistake is going to rear its ugly head. Having your knitting all bunched up on a needle can lead to a few oversights!
 I really really liked knitting this one. It blocked really nicely. I didn't use pins or wires as I realized it was pretty big-it is approx 63 inches in diameter. I just shaped and measured to see if it was a circle and not an ellipse. I definitely will knit another one. The pattern is just so very pretty.  Thank you Mr. Flood. My pictures do not do the dyeing justice. Thank you Madtosh

  1. It's beautiful! How much easier it must have been not having to pin it too!
