The blocking of project is the least fun part of knitting for me. There’s a yarn shop down in Austin, and probably lots of other places too, and for a fee, they will soak and block your projects. If I lived near one of those places, for some of the projects, I’d be inclined to pay the fee, which I have no idea what it is, and let someone else have the joy of blocking.
It’s mostly the blocking wires I don’t like. This project needed sires – six of them!
I usually do my blocking on the double bed because no one ever sleeps in there so I leave my mats set up. This wrap was too long for even the queen size bed!
Once it’s dry, I’ll take a final picture and share it here.
I do have another Advent kit from last year but it’s in “classic” colors, which probably means more reds and greens. I haven’t even looked at it.
