I finally got my sweater blocked and we shot some photos of Cerisara last Friday before work. Here she is! I had worried so much about the blocking, but you can see that the ribbing at the bottom relaxed after its bath:Remember how I saw I was surprised that my swatch didn’t change sizes after blocking even though alpaca is known for growing? Well, the sweater really wanted to grow. But I spent the requisite supplicative time on my knees in front of my blocking towel, and I was able to nudge the sweater back into the dimensions I wanted it to be. I am very pleased and really enjoyed wearing this comfortable sweater to work last week. Hooray!
Now, my pink and green sock is giving me a headache again, but I’ll save that update for another post. For now, happiness!
