Still quiet here. But the quiet means that I’ve been knitting like crazy. The shawls for the book are now all complete. And I’m in the midst of blocking.
Naturally I have to sew in the ends of all the shawls before I block. No idea why I saved this for the end…… in many ways it makes a lot more sense to finish each shawl entirely as I go. On the other hand, getting 12 shawls ready for a book takes a long time. The first one was off the needles last summer. So if I had blocked it at that time, I’d probably have to reblock it now to get rid of the creases. Instead, I just seem to be having a never-ending blocking party right now.
Here are four of the shawls that I was busy sewing in ends on this morning.
It will take me a while to get through the blocking for all the shawls (I can really only block one or maximum two at a time), but by the end of the month they will all be in the mail heading to Cooperative Press and the photoshoot. Super exciting!
