Knit Lit

Blocking Beast

Yes, blocking bit me in the butt. Again!  As I was knitting the back of the Twist, it looked aweful small.  I kept telling myself that I measured a blocked object in the same yarn and needle.  It would be okay.  I would just block it within an inch of its life.  I would rather have a too small cardigan than a too big one, especially if I am planning to loose weight.  However, as soon as the back piece hit the water, BAM!  It was instantly too big! Uugghh!

I squished it down enought that I think it will be okay.  The only bad thing about squishing instead of pulling is it doesn’t end up as smooth.  Oh well, I like it anyway.
