Blocking August 15, 2008

So I spent part of today blocking swatches for some submissions. I never look forward to blocking projects. In fact, I dread it. But, the truth is that things look so much prettier after blocking. Squares really start to look like squares. Circles look more circular. Stitch detail really shines through. Blocking is one of those necessary evils, kinda like weaving in ends.

Yarn of the Day: Lion Brand Baby Soft is an acrylic and nylon blend that is just so nice and soft without excessive fuzz. I love that when I take the yarn band off the whole skein just seems to burst out into a big, fluffy puff. Yummy
