bracken: blocking/before buttons.

bracken blocking

I gave bracken a nice soak and then tried to get a bit more length out of it as it lay drying on these awesome blocking squares. (These are from Knitpicks, and seriously, they cut drying time in half.)

Blocking = magic. Everything relaxed and totally evened out, and I think the length is absolutely perfect. I think Boh agreed, because he kept trying to get in the picture.

Now I just need to sew on the buttons! (Well, first I need to find some appropriate thread.)

bracken grey buttons

I was looking through my button jars for a set of dark brown buttons, but the ones I have are a bit shiny, so I think I’m going to go with the grey matte buttons on the left.

If only I could make such satisfying progress on my writing projects…

  1. Style looks great on you!

    I just read your post before this one, I’d be cursing myself a blue streak and have tossed it in the knitting basket while I brewed for a few days. Your resolution was much better. The vest looks terrific. :)

  2. Very nice! I agree with you on the buttons. I have the same blocking squares. I had to buy a second set for blocking my shawls. Looking forward to a modeled shot outdoors in the sun. :-)

  3. Beautiful!!! I really like this. I agree about the grey buttons. I need blocking mats too. Boh shot = magic. He knows this. ;)

  4. I wish papers responded so nicely to a good soak. And the right buttons. Hope the writing is looking better today!

  5. Nice! Glad to see that your disaster-aversion went well. How did /Ceremony/ go with your sections?

  6. It’s fantastic! Especially with those jeans–they look so comfy. Is Boh asking for some knit-wear of his own?
