Sorry about the dodgy photo. This Argyl cardigan has been waiting to be blocked for a while now. I thought I'd do it now before I get caught up in the Knit Olympics and it'll get forgotten about.
How do you block? I know some simply pin out the garment and spritz water or steam over it. I've been known to even just take a hot iron over a garment. *Gasp* However, I do find that by properly washing in soap suds it makes the garment feel softer and more manageable. But we all love a short cut.
This Argyl was soaked in warm soap suds and I'm hoping it will dry over night so I can sew it together ahead of Friday's opening ceremony, where I'll be casting on for the Jaywalkers. Go Great Britain Team, Go. Oh and... Go, DPN Team Go.
IVF rollercoaster - I'm getting giddy, but want to stay on longer. 18 eggs collected. 9 fertilised. As of today (day 2) I have 7 grade 1's. So, on the embryo side that's not bad.
