Blocking

Avery blocking

I blocked my Mum’s sweater for her. She’s in town for Devan’s birthday and finished knitting the pieces to an Avery sample. I have a piece of gingham fabric on which I drew out all the pattern pieces and sizes of my designs with fabric markers. This speeds along the blocking considerably since I don’t ever need to measure.

I just love the colours in this Avery. The self-patterning yarn is from the Kaffe Fassett collection by Regia. I don’t know what solid she used. If you’re dying to know, send me a message in the¬†comments and I’ll follow it up.

This morning I had the perfectly blocked pieces ready to go so I can hand them to my Mum when I took her to the airport. This sample will end up in a LYS shop  somewhere. Let me know if you see it in your LYS!
