magic of blocking, part three

This pattern worked up so fast, I didn't even manage to post an "in progress" shot here on the blog! This pattern tested my trust in blocking a bit--as you can see in the "before" it was looking pretty "eh" in the pre-blocking stage. I was a little nervous, but kept telling myself "wait until you block it, wait until you block it." And sure enough, the magic worked yet again!

Pattern: Sewanee, another freebie one-skein sock shawlette (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock (colorway: autumn blaze, used .9 of the skein)
Needles: size 5 Addi Turbo's
Modifications: None! The stockinette was a slog after awhile, but the lace was super speedy!

  2. I love it, and the color is gorgeous! And now I am off to grab my skein of vacation yarn to cast on. I was fudging another patten, but why not just go with a beautiful pattern I don't have to fudge!
