I love blocking. I tend to think that I don’t because it requires time and patience, both of which I tend to be in short supply of. When I do find the time though, I find it quite meditative and you can’t really complain about a process that turns this:
The corners look ruffled in the picture above but it is actually an optical illusion caused by the yarn striping.
The yarn is Knit Picks Shadow Tonal in blue-violet and this is a second version of my Japanese-inspired shawl, which (after nearly a year!) I have finally finished writing up. I’m tidying up some bits and pieces and waiting for my camera batteries to re-charge so that I can upload the rest of the photographs I took. Then it will be off to be edited and, with any luck, published by the end of the month.
