Block it, block it, block it

It's amazing what a little water and soap can do.

Remember how I was fretting about the Central Park Hoodie.

It was never going to fit the intended recipient. I was ready to frog the whole thing and start over when I decided to give it a blocking. I have never fully blocked -- total immersion in water and stretching it out, that is -- before. Usually I just steam-ironed the edges prior to seaming.

Well, the CPH back took a plunge and Hey Presto!

The magic of blocking. I am blocking everything from now on.

Reassured, I started the fronts. I am knitting both sides at the same time.

I love this yarn. Dream in Color. I have two more sweaters to be knitted with DIC waiting to go.

Another WIP shaping up is the Gaia shawl.

This too will need serious blocking. But at least I don't have to worry about the size.
