Blocking Matters

2018-01-28_12-35-09_938

While I did knit this weekend, none of my knitting looks any different today than it did last week.   The curse of solid color knitting.  I did manage to block my Hydrogen shawl though!

And it grew!  Yay!

Pre-blocking, with a couple inches to spare on either side of the fence:

Post-blocking, overhanging the fence panel by a couple inches!

It’s a great size now and I went up in needle size so it’s a loose, drapey, lovely fabric.

Also, Rainbow!!  I’m looking forward to wearing it a lot.

Now, back to my sweater.  Next time you hear from me, I want to have the body bound off!

    1. Thanks! I’m a big fan of our fence too…I’d be so pissed if the landlord ever removed it. Fortunately, it’s a preschool play yard on the other side, so there’s no chance that space will ever be fenceless :)
