Remember this?

2008 Finishes: Knitting

If you've been reading for a while, you may (or may not) remember that I knit Birch back in 2005-2006. And then never mentioned it again. That's because it's been sitting in a Ziploc bag in my underwear drawer since then, waiting to have the ends woven in and to be blocked. I finally decided that this was ridiculous, and that I had to get over my blocking phobia. (I'd only blocked smaller items in the past.) I set the Fiber Revival as my deadline, so I could show it off, and ordered blocking wires from Knitpicks. I don't think it's the best blocking job ever, but it's done!


I love it. Wheeee.

It's beautiful! I like to let my projects marinate a bit before finishing too. ;o)

Beautiful! Blocking was really easy, wasn't it?

A knitting app for an iPhone? Off to check that out.
