While getting some things ready for blocking a couple of weeks ago, I ran into a couple of knitted things that have been waiting for over a year to be blocked. Just in time I might add, so I blocked one this weekend and discovered that I didn't really need to block the other.
You can see how it conforms to the waist on the the mannequin. On Sunday, I tried it on myself and low and behold, I like it! The added waist shaping is just what I needed, and it hit where all of my good sweaters should, just below the belly.
It's going to be a winner I have declared. And it really did not need blocking. Even better.
I just love it when I find cool sweaters already to go!
