Okay, so I finished the dish towel! It took longer because I thought I was going to have to order more yarn. Then one day I was going through a bag that had been living in the car forever and found two more balls of that color....along with a project that I started last fall and never finished. Anyway, I was able to finish without spending any more money. Yay Me!
It was looking a bit wonky so I decided to actually block it. I have never ever blocked anything before. I always wondered if it actually makes a real difference. Well, and I'm pretty lazy when it comes to that kind of "after the fact" work, so if I can get away without doing anything extra.... This time I figured I would give it a try. I had read around the web about it, so I had some kind of idea about what to do....not really :)
I had no idea if I should use a few pins or a lot of pins... I went with a lot. Pinned it to the mattress, sprayed it down (wasn't sure how wet to make it), and walked away. That night I went back and it was dry....hmmmm....I thought it was supposed to take longer, guess I didn't make it wet enough. Oh well, I unpinned it, and couldn't believe how much better it looked. The stitches looked great, the shaped was way less wonky. It made me happy. :)
I think I might start blocking everything now.
I'm a believer!
Here's a sneak peek at what's next....
