My current work in progress:

The Shift, designed by Andrea Mowry, knit from Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool, using 3.75mm.

Steamed

There as a comment on my last blog post about the block-ability of the Corrugated Shawl I am knitting;

Love that yarn color and it does look like a fun pattern to knit but… is it really going to block out into a straight edged piece of knitting? I know blocking can perform miracles but… I’m going to be very impressed if it works.

Be impressed! 🙂 I quickly steamed my work so far and laid it out on the couch:

As you can see, it blocks out very nicely.

Here’s a closer look at the texture stitches:

I am a bit over half done at this point. Still very much enjoying knitting this and the yarn usage is right on target. Stay tuned!

Loki is in the middle of his usual Sunday afternoon activity.

  1. Looks like Loki has claimed the Hinza tote as his. You’ll need another one for your knitting!

  2. If only Loki could learn to relax! ;P

  3. Wow! I am impressed! Blocking’s magic never ceases to amaze me. Love those pillows, btw. 🙂

  4. I have wanted to knit something like this since I bought the large book. But I was afraid I would have to switch needle sizes and refigure gauges for each different area. Did you encounter this problem? Or did you simply use the same needle size throughout the pattern?

  5. Happy Holidays, Wendy and Loki! I hope you have a fantastic 2018!

  6. Blocking looks great. Makes it even prettier. Happy Holidays to all. Hugs to Loki.
