Blocking Bonanza!

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 9:14 am

Yesterday morning was remarkably productive! First I sewed all the patches onto Bunny’s new Tae Kwon Do uniform. My that was a pain… I hope he’s not a Boy Scout! Then we went to said Tae Kwon Do class where I got some knitting done. To the bagel store for a snack and then home where I plopped the sleep-deprived 4-year-old in front of the TV, tried not to feel too guilty, and got to blocking. Photos from my blocking board clean laundry depository guest bed.

First up the Heart Breakingly cute Kimono from Mason Dixon Knitting. This from Socks that Rock heavyweight in colorway Seal Rock. The blocking was mainly to straighten out the curling so I can seam it. I bought snaps last night because I have decided to use those as closures. It, with some matching baby socks, are for Baby V born on 11/28.

Next, all four pieces of Avery for Bunny. I can’t believe I’m finally to the finishing stages. I think I started this sweater last January or maybe February. I love the idea of using the self-striping sock yarn, but this does mean you’re making a sweater out of sock yarn. I kept stopping because I would want to work on something where there was actual progress! Now I’m excited to get it done and Bunny will wear it for the pageant on Friday at school where I will point out to anyone who will listen that I knitted that!

The rest of yesterday was good as well. I watched a recorded episode of Knitty Gritty (now that it’s on HGTV it’s on my DVR list) and took a nap! I’m almost up to the heel turn on Bunny’s stocking so need to figure that out. We are not mentioning that he had a giant fit at some point yesterday that he didn’t want a stocking that had a pattern (it’s striped). I figure he will like it once Santa fills it, pattern or no…

On the docket for today, shopping, wrapping, finishing, and a Christmas party where they have more cookies that you can even imagine!


  1. I like looking at blocking things, don’t know why. Just the order of each piece lying there. And you’re so good with the blocking wires and all!

  2. All that knitting and sewing for your little one and you still feel guilty about a little tv?! Don’t be too hard on yourself!
