As promised...

Isn't my kitchen floor lovely?

Blocking is really amazing.  I think I may quit knitting and just block things all day.  I was quite sure this sweater was going to be way too small (although my gauge was okay)... I wanted to do at least a quick preliminary steam blocking, just to make sure I'd be able to get the right size, before starting the front and the sleeves.  It really takes something from handmade looking to very professional.  I'll block it for real when the front is done, but very cool.

The Treasure Island sale was fairly disappointing... I got a few skeins of Lion Microspun, but that's it... mostly baby yarns I wasn't really interested in.
