We still haven't moved, and I thought with a sigh that I didn't really want to wait until after the move to block this.
Which drew my eye to the pile of sister sweater pieces that need to be blocked before I can finish it off - seam in the centre panel and work up the neckline and hem ribbing.
And then I reflected on the fact that my sister's birthday is this coming Sunday. This sweater isn't really her gift, but it's been a long anticipated piece, and it sure would be nice to present it to her on her day.
Bingo. Challenge accepted. This morning I gave the sink a quick cleanaroo, then dumped the sweater pieces into Soak-y water. They marinated like that for 45 minutes, then I squeezed them out by hand and laid them out on the not-a-table. (Yes, I skipped the step where you roll your pieces up in a towel and then walk on them. I always skip this step. It's dry in Calgary. Also, I'm lazy.)
Tomorrow (or, you know, Wednesday - I did skip the towel step) I'll seam in that centre panel, and then I'll be off and
We need to move soon. I'm running out of stuff to knit with!
