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.)
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…
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. :)
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. :-)
It looks great! The length seems perfect. Well done!
Beautiful!!! I really like this. I agree about the grey buttons. I need blocking mats too. Boh shot = magic. He knows this. ;)
I wish papers responded so nicely to a good soak. And the right buttons. Hope the writing is looking better today!
Nice! Glad to see that your disaster-aversion went well. How did /Ceremony/ go with your sections?
It’s working out just fine! Length, fit, and button choice. Yay!
It’s fantastic! Especially with those jeans–they look so comfy. Is Boh asking for some knit-wear of his own?
