I think most knitters would agree, a knitter’s idea of a block party is significantly different than what most people would think…I finally blocked some finished knitting projects. I had so much to block that my small set of Knitpicks foam blocks wasn’t enough to get the job done. I had my mind on completing this huge task and so last week I went to Target and found these children’s foam blocks:
And, now, some blocking progress!
I finally cast-off Romney’s Kerchief….I couldn’t get myself to do the recommended cast-off…it seemed like it would be just too time consuming. Last week, I decided to go up to size 10 needles and cast-off. A bit of a risk, as I was almost out of yarn but it all worked out fine.
My Not At Sock Summit Socks…I loved knitting with The Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga yarn although I was “meh” about the pattern….size 1 needles too…a never ending project but very nice results!
My Rose Lace Stole!! I love this! I love the lace pattern! I really love rectangular shape! I want to knit another rectangular shawl ASAP!
Andrea’s Shawl – Loved this pattern too! Such a pretty combination of green! And, surprise! Look! The lace looks mostly like the pattern photos! (I thought I was making all kinds of mistakes!)
What did I learn from my block party? Wow, blocking can really accenuate lace patterns! And, all of my shawls blocked to the correct size. Even the Rose Lace Stole which I was soooo worried about. Now, to get some photos of all these finished projects onto Ravelry!
One thought on “Block Party!”
Wow you've been busy! I'm just using Sanguine Gryphon for the first time and I love it. Those socks are adorable!
