Okay, the moment. Here we are, my beastie and me.
So. I knit a very nice sweater dress for myself.
My options as far as I can see would be to:
- Try immersion blocking again, and this time squish all the stitches really really close together. I do not think this will work.
- Try steam-blocking. I actually prefer steam-blocking, unless I am dealing with something that got dirty while I worked on it or something for a baby (which I like to wash in Dreft before the baby will wear it anyways). I held back with the Beast only because the yarn is 7% angora and 15% nylon and I really didn't want to risk fusing the fibers together. I may try it now.....unless I decide on my final option:
- Frog the whole damn thing and reclaim the yarn (which is soft and beautiful and a color that is perfect for me) for something else.
I am going to bring it to Margot.....she's pretty honest about projects and will tell me if I should just bag the whole thing.
That's an idea! Bag the whole thing.....put it in a bag and forget about it.
I think I may go back to baby stuff and accessories for a bit while I mull this over. I took this out of the library, and may be inspired to construct some very different scarves.
For now I think I will take today off from knitting and go back to cleaning my house....in 4 hours Pete's coworkers are coming over and there is much to be done! Procrastination over. Thank you.
