The sun was threatening to go behind a very large BLACK cloud but I kept the good thought and hauled all the stuff I would need for blocking outside.
String, pencil, interlocking foam slabs, T pins, bottled water. What else could I possibly need?
1. Doesn't look much like a circle to me.
2. It is a lot smaller than I expected....crap. I keep pinning expecting a miracle.
Finally I stop and take the all the pins out and go re soak the knitting...damn
Go look in garage for something to use as a straight edge.
Now I am on to something here. I haul the cloth out of the house in a plastic jug and dump it on the foam. Water sloshes and floods every where. Firstly I pin out 4 points then 8. Ahhhh.... I am on to something now. By the way the bottle of water was replaced by a very large white wine spritzer. Should know better than to drink water when working on complicated problems.
My knees are killing me from crawling around. This was actually not a bad way to block. Aforementioned spritzer is getting a little too far away. Remedy that next.Almost done.
Did I really knit that??
The chairs and the bottle of water (snort) are weighing down the foam while the drying is in process. Once this is accomplished I will have to weave in the ends and it will be truly finished.
I will have to purchase a dark cloth to do under it as it is too small for my glass topped table.
