"Do you believe in magic in a young girl's heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it's magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I'll tell you about the magic, and it'll free your soul
But it's like trying to tell a stranger 'bout rock and roll"
Or as E put - "Block and roll!!"
I am in love with blocking!!! I blocked my Mystery Stole last week and it was pure joy. I was worried that it wouldn't be long enough.... boy was I wrong!
I let is soak (in Soak) for half an hour and then used my new Knit Picks blocking wires to pin it out. The only way I could fit it on the queen sized guest bed was diagonally!
It just kept growing and growing! It really bloomed like crazy. I love the Jaggerspun Zephyr Wool Silk so much. Thanks Cheryl!
Proper photos and stats as soon as I can get someone to take pictures for me! (hint hint!)
Since I loved blocking my shawl so much - I looked around for something else to block and look what I dug up! My long hibernating friend - the Central park hoodie!
I started this last winter and I put it down when it started to get too hot to take the HUGE amount of wool on my lap. But now that the weather is getting cool again - I can indulge in some more cable love and maybe finally finish my hoodie!
I worked on it all weekend - and I'm proud to say - the body is seamed. the hood is 90% done and I think I may have to add another inch or two to the sleeves before I can attach them! I can't wait to show this baby off!
Oh yeah - my boys wanted to say hi too....
Bailey needs a haircut something awful! You can't even see his eyes right now!
And Hurley, as always, just looks cute and wants to play....
