blocking is magic.
I finished Daisy! After blocking for the first time, I have to say that blocking is magic. Seriously. Now the pattern really shows.
This is my first project with edging! Here are some details of the front and back:
Now that I'm so won over by the magic known as blocking, I want to block everything!
For my next big project I'm working on the Chevron Scarf from the Last Minute Knit Gifts book. The pattern calls for Koigu, but I'm using some delicious Persimmon Tree Hill potluck silk instead. Looks like this farm only sells yarn 5 times a year, and lucky for me, the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival is one of them! (Just 6 weeks to go!)
I'm using two different colors: One is mostly browns, purples, and silvers, and the other is made up of cooler browns with oranges and blues. I have started on size 7 needles, but am still contemplating taking it out and starting again on size 8 or 9 instead.
On the subject of magic, I got sorted into Gryffindor! Click on the hat if you want to get sorted, too!
:: Yarn used : Green Mountain Spinnery Painted Merino/Tencel 50/50, 2 skeins
:: Needles : size 7
:: Final Size after blocking : 6.5" x 74"
