Blocking woes..

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

I am blocking my new Poción Shawl and have once again discovered a need for several things that are now officially on my ‘must have’ list.

1. A table large enough and the right height to facilitate blocking FOs without the need for crawling around on the floor.
2. A set of blocking wires, to hopefully achieve straighter edges while blocking and to be able to not run out of pins halfway through pinning out a project.
3. Another set of foam puzzle things to use as blocking boards, I need at least one more set of 4.. maybe 2.

Here is a sneak peak at the Poción Shawl while it is blocking. Not the best lighting.. I will have to do the finished pictures outside for this one to show off the beautiful colors. I am rather pleased with how it has turned out.

I have a few more things to do on the pattern and then it will be ready to go in our testing group on Ravelry.

These are only the things I can think of right this moment that I need.. The list is ever growing! How about you? What is on your ‘must have’ list?
