Blocking....

Monday, September 10, 2007

Well, here it is, blocking: the Heavily Modified Puff-Sleeved Feminine Cardigan.



Horrible picture, I know, but it's cloudy and rainy here today and I was too excited to show you a picture while it was on the blocking "board". I just cut a chunk off of the box from the laundry sink I installed a few weeks ago. (I actually kept it around just for that purpose). Worked great!

I'll get a picture up this week of it actually on me with all of the specs and mods. Hopefully it will fit once it's blocked! The below-the-waist bit was pretty tight pre-blocking. So much for fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants increases. Oh and I have to find some buttons. So far, these are my favorite and, coincidentally, the least expensive I've found. Anyone have any good button buying sites to tell me about?

I can't wait to see it finished! I can't help button buying, but I do like the ones you picked out. Wood is always a nice touch.
