Block Experiment

For all these years, I have resisted blocking my work.  Mostly out of laziness, I think.  But not this time!  I just finished designing this lovely little lacy cowl, and I decided that today was the day I was going to finally try blocking something.  I followed instructions I found in the article To Block or Not to Block by Jessica Fenlon Thomas on knitty.com.

Here is the before picture:

And here it is after (I laid it out on a folded up towel sitting in a glass pan):

I’m hoping that the edges will continue to lay down once it’s dried out.  And I can already see how it makes the lace stitch stand out.

Now we just wait a day or two until it dries!

Cheers!
