Last night was knitting night, and I finished all the knitty and crochet-y parts of the Brown Beauty. Can I get a YAY up in here?
Seeing how impatient I was to actually wear the thing, our lovely hostess, High-Energy-Jenny-from-the-Block, schooled me in her blocking process. It involves a sink, a colander, and lots of towels. Here’s the sink part of the process:
I’m a little excited.
After several gentle squeezes through the (clean) colander, we moved to the towel portion of the blocking. We laid out the Beauty on a towel, rolled it up tightly to get out excess water, and repeated. After the second towel, it was on to the final stage:
She blocks! She blocks!
(I’m dancing around like Ricky Martin RIGHT NOW.)
I’m so excited. I’m hoping for a few chilly evenings so I can throw this sweater on over a tank top. Almost finished!
Knitting night was a good time as usual, although someone needs to tell this girl that she shouldn’t drink wine and knit a multidirectional scarf at the same time. Although, maybe we all should take that whole don’t-knit-while-you’re-drinking thing a bit more seriously – there was a near disaster last night with a laptop, a glass of wine, and a sweater. But no worries – nothing was ruined. Permanently, anyways.
It’s a rainy, yucky day here, and I’m having kind of a crappy day at work. But luckily my schmoo just called and said he wants to have lunch, so I’m going to take him up on that and hopefully get cheered up. Here’s hoping all of you have lots of sunshine today.
